Ode to Weak Bodies Like Mine, Pt. 2

by Ben Shear

Ode to Weak Bodies like Mine is an ongoing psycho-poetic record of heightened emotional states brought about by alimentary hypoglycemia, sebaceous cysts, youth throwers elbow, dehydration, and an inquisitive mind. Though expansive in scope, this is only the second published recording in a six-year period. Pt.1 can be found in the April 20 edition of the Expressionless Bulletin, an occasional digital publication featuring thoughts and words on art, culture, and other matters of import.

Pt. 2 was recorded in Northern Michigan in October of 2020 and edited in California in May of 2021.
