a setting of Amy Lowell's 'Superstition' 
composed for Brad Wells and Roomful of Teeth

I have painted a picture of a ghost
Upon my kite,
And hung it on a tree.
Later, when I loose the string
And let it fly,
The people will cower
And hide their heads,
For fear of the God
Swimming in the clouds.

— Amy Lowell
