My clocks are talking backwards

Seas fall between themselves

Yawning, the world fills

Blinking commas




My clocks are singing sideways

Skies lie between themselves

Waking reflections

Dream-filled question






Written before, shortly before, on the way to, during post-dinner grocery shopping, then partly forgotten and written/developed by writing it down.


Like many of my ideas, it comes from a multi-dimensional vision, eg it will / could be a film or have a visual sequence, or be spoken, and/ have music, or it might be a song.

About The Mollusc Dimension

"Like existence, art, expression and even the urge to explore are in a state of flux, revelation and memory. Each encounter through the doorway, into the state of creativity is a catalyst for action, emotional and spiritual as well as physical and intellectual. As Krishnamurti says, there is no state of happiness but the state of the creative moment." This is currently the "Writing Dept" (eg “just words” — well mainly!) for The Mollusc Dimension, AKA Angelus Squid Marr, an East-Asian, British, experimental, interdisciplinary artist working in music, image and sound. He has a particular interest in themes of identity, queerness, intersectional feminism, surrealism + education and using lo-fi/ everyday materials (words/experiences/equipment) in addition to technology.
