About Jim's new album, Israel Rains writes: 'Good Work' is a dichotomy of being your most exciting album and lyrically your most esoteric. You explore many of the same themes you have throughout your discography but now with the courage to be darker. You explore this (with) a more eclectic influence, incorporating Latin (rhythms) in a surprising way. I would like to see you continue in this direction. Good work!

Sunday September 3 AD 2017

Shadows came & went, a tall shoot
Had risen from the holly bush
Breath of being settled on us
Made us glad to say what we could
Trusty jock strap of honest words
Strong words to support the weary
(Into poorly lit, weightless space
Came a vision - laughter & rest)

Sunday September 10 AD 2017

The bell had already been rung
In porch shade, crickets continued
I had fallen on affection
The party over & it's good
To have someone who'll help you up
Or at least ask if you're okay
Moving slowly - I'm expected
Across the newly tidied lawn

Sunday September 17 AD 2017

Cricket, cicada, flying seed
From a blue sky w/ sound of bells
Gently moved by life's intention
Cautious toward the damaged soul
A spirit personified sits
Upon the ledge of my window
Movement being moved by being
And the strength that comes behind him


(If you'd like to support my communications & projects, feel free)
