Sal Kang

music / unraveled

the ‘death car’
came out of the darkness,
its color

violently extinguished
with dust

damp
with the need

for vitality

we slowed down
we became hollow
we walked toward a sound

we walked

into God


 

Source & Method: The poem is from The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald. I located a random page in the novel and tried to make something new out of the words in that one page.


Sal Kang is a multifaceted artist who currently works at an art museum and makes tender lo-fi tracks in her bedroom when she has a moment to spare. She finds ‘normal’ life tiresome.
