    The poem by Jacob Læby this track is based on:

    Den Hvide Død

    Udenfor rider ørkenen på forslugende døde kameler
    og vi tegner ringe i sandet
    som spor fra en bugtende slange

    Stærens jamrende fårårskvaler
    er tegn
    forklædt i kosmisk baggrundstøj

    Virusdommen fra det hensides ursuppe
    fremkalder et fotografi af dig i genbrugstøj
    der synes at inkarnere fåresygens opsvulmede influensabrud
    som kvæles af et intetkønnet spejlbillede af Pan

    En bioluminent fortids skygge
    tabt i Fibunacis svimlende metageometriske labyrint

    Den hvide død der indimellem sniger sig
    ind under dørtærskelen,
    skyder fantomnålesmerter gennem vores klædedragts syning,
    fratager rummet dets favntag om tiden
    og blotlægger udsigten gennem
    kærlighedens tremmer:

    Mine himmelråbende gluk-huller's æblehuler
    vender sig i din sjæls velourpolstrede
    teaktræskiste ved nærhedens stikkende vakum:

    En singularitet af sultende aparti!
    Øjet der ånder os i nakken!

    En sløvende afmagt
    hver gang dit hoved gemmer sig
    bag et skuldertræk

    -

    The English translation:

    The White Death

    Outside the desert rides on gluttonous dead camels
    and we draw circles in the sand
    like traces from a meandering snake

    The starling's wailing anguish of spring
    signs
    cloaked in cosmic background noise

    The virus judgment from beyond's primordial soup
    develops a photograph of you in second hand clothes
    that seems to incarnate the mumps' swollen flu-bride
    choked by the neuter mirror image of Pan

    A bioluminence shadow of the past
    lost in the vertiginous meta-geometric labyrinth of Fibunaci

    The white death that sometimes creeps
    in under the doorstep,
    shoots needle pain phantoms through the seams of our dress,
    deprive space it's embrace of time,
    and expose the view through
    love's bars:

    My heavenward peepholes' apple cavities
    turn in the velour padded teak wood coffin of your soul
    by proximity's stinging vacuum:

    A singularity of hungering apathy!
    The eye that breathes behind our back!

    A dulling impotence
    every time your head
    hides behind a shrug Show less
