Safari

Edward Essis-Breton

Safari has been performed in Montréal and Muncie…

The creatures awaken
The little ones work, the feathers flutter
The claws chase their prey and the hooves are military
The wind brushes the manes and the water caresses the skins
Wild and domestic voices sing a bestial counterpoint
Trumpeting, whistling, roaring, growling, and clucking
The village dances to the rhythm of business
When the sun sinks behind the horizon, the nocturnals color the darkness
Their hypnotic lullabies harmonize with the starry sky
