Rick Pryll, The Chimera of Prague

“I want to relearn the intervals, to
journey with a man among the thirds and fifths,
augumented, diminshed, with a light touch,

adores and dotes - and of course what I reaaly

A Man Stretched His Mouth to the Utmost Extent,
And Down at One Gulp House and Old Woman Went.”
