The sound collector

The sound collector

A stranger came to Egypt

dressed all in black and grey

put every sound into a bag

and carried them away


The thundering of the gods

The swaying of the Nile

The howling of the jackal

The snapping of the crocodile .


The cracking of the pyramid walls

The snoring of the priest

The crashing of the battle

The munching of the feast.


A stranger came to Egypt

he didn’t leave his name

left us only in silence

life will never be the same.
