Shore Pines & Spider Silk

from Radiant Poison by Misha Penton



Shore Pines & Spider Silk is a new music and video project: a blend of futuristic opera, avant-spoken word, and gothic chamber electronica—set in a dreamworld of city and ocean-scapes where poetry comes alive in the movement of language through the voice and body.


I open the front door and little gold beetles fly to the porch light
Pale yellow buds fold into sleep
An egret alights on a cement fence:
— he stalks moths among winter blossoms
An almost-full moon illuminates the forest
Conifers hold their wind-blown shapes
And the smooth gray frameworks of gnarled shore pines twist skyward
Ice crystals encrust blades of marsh grasses
Sending up tiny frozen spikes of multi-colored moss
I warm unfurling tendrils with whispers and songs and rhymes
I brush past fern fiddleheads and the icy white skeletons of bishop’s lace
…tiny spiders weave webs from starlight
