One with the Vulture January 24, 2009

This poem by Robinson Jeffers found me as finished the paper puppet

I had walked since dawn and lay down to rest on a bare hillside
Above the ocean. I saw through half-shut eyelids a vulture wheeling
high up in heaven,
And presently it passed again, but lower and nearer, its orbit
narrowing,
I understood then
That I was under inspection. I lay death-still and heard the flight-
feathers
Whistle above me and make their circle and come nearer.
I could see the naked red head between the great wings
Bear downward staring. I said, “My dear bird, we are wasting time
here.
These old bones will still work; they are not for you.” But how
beautiful
he looked, gliding down
On those great sails; how beautiful he looked, veering away in the
sea-light
over the precipice. I tell you solemnly
That I was sorry to have disappointed him. To be eaten by that beak
and
become part of him, to share those wings and those eyes–
What a sublime end of one’s body, what and enskyment; what a life
after death.

Circle the wagons folks!  Pre-production is in full swing here at the studio.  The valves have been turned and the gears are greased for Konrad’s Canyon Blue video.  Today saw the creation of a paper vulture head for the opening sequence.
