4. The Vulture: from "Echo's Bones" poem: Samuel Beckett; Priscilla Chew, 'cello, with the composer: David Edgar Walther, bass-baritone.
4. The Vulture: dragging his hunger through the sky of my skull
Shell of sky and earth stooping to the prone
who must soon take up your life and walk
mocked by a tissue that may not serve
til hunger earth and sky be offal
*internal organs used as food.
