Planet Song – SHE’S A SHOW

Lyrics: Mette Moestrup
Music: Miriam Karpantschof

this utopia invites to a friendship
with water darkness
and the earth

black earth
blue planet
green plants
on the planet

this utopia accepts the makeshift
impermanence and imperfection
on the

black earth
blue planet
green plants
on the planet

plant plants on the planet

listen to the nightingale
would you like to eat its heart?
sing your own songs, wild and frail
and embrace the forest’s art

plant plants on the planet

this utopia cares for biotopes
ecosystems and the environment
on the
black earth
blue planet
green plants
on the planet

read asemic poetry by
other-than-human writers
read the solstice and the sky
and the wind, go wider

dream of a future that isn’t yours
fight for a future that isn’t yours

plant plants on the planet

Planet Song is inspired by conversations with ecopoet a rawlings and Ursula K. Le Guins text Utopiyin, Utopiyang in No Time to Spare (2017).
