Caspar Sonnet - 7. The artist's will is secondary to the process he initiates from idea to completion. His wilfulness may only be ego.

track from Songs On Conceptual Art, a compilation album inspired by Sol LeWitt's 1969 writing Sentences on Conceptual Art

lyrics

You’ll notice if I’ve wandered by the precipice, a shadow flickering asunder
Hungry ghost

Deflowering the pleasantries of all the peasants shuffling in half devotion
Hollowing

Those staggering lone villagers compel my hunger for lifelessness, none withstanding
Mincing words

I find it moving that they’re cowering in such scarcity not shoving but throwing shovels
Shallow graves

Devouring the likelihood of taking my own chances
“I’ll withstand mirroring”
