Part art music, part poetry reading and part folk-rock oratorio, it was by turns profoundly moving, playful and darkly atmospheric
Paul (likealike Phil) sung with his arms outstretched like a bird in flight and the music, words and voices combined effortlessly
The suggestion that MEdia Dragons twisted Paul's arms to include a reference to Chekov gun and add Czech poet is exaggerated ;-)
Miroslav Holub - Holub means the bird Dove - Translated by George Theiner
She sat on a willow-trunk watching
part of the battle of Crecy, the shouts,
the tramping and the tumbling.
During the fourteenth charge of the French cavalry
with a brown-eyed male fly from Vadincourt.
She rubbed her legs together
as she sat on a disembowelled horse meditating
on the immortality of flies.
With relief she alighted on the blue tongue
of the Duke of Clervaux.
When silence settled
and only the whisper of decay softly circled the bodies
a few arms and legs
still twitched jerkily under the trees,
she began to lay her eggs on the single eye
of Johann Uhr,
the Royal Armourer.
And thus it was
that she was eaten by a swift fleeing
from the fires of Estrees.
