Birdcages are filled with imaginary birds, improvising on the classics, riffing through stolen melodies; cuckoos clock and clack and can't quite keep time; underwater bubbles come to the surface, making rhythmic patterns in a field of alien wildflowers; windows frame distant vistas, radiating with yesterday's sound, a granular frog, a repeating river, a Creek chorus of Euphrats, glass sounds floating by. Afterwards you will want to curl up with a good brook.
