Mike Corrao's AVIAN FUNERAL MARCH is a new mythology of abstract and half-formed entities. It reads like breathing a miasma of autoclaved cell cultures, or deadly endospores, the DNA of an ancient, occursed organism awakening inside your mind. .
Glyphic, cryptologic, theatrical and incantatory, Corrao's text speaks to the healing power of a sacred automutilation. Deity. Cataract or wave. The undulant and peristalsic form of something that doesnt know what it is yet. Tactile, sensual and organic. Entropic. Liminal. Ritualistic. .
