A dozen drops fall from your face
Shaking the rain in a quiet place
Shining clean a fresh new day
Wakes up the world in a fragrant bouquet

    I wonder, does Nancy know she is almost a legendary figure for us Jandek listeners? Oh, who knows where she is now.

    He says "abject noise" like it's a bad thing...

    Infinite monkeys with typewriters metaphor is witty, but not quite true. It isn't the only good Jandek song. Isn't, say, Naked in the Afternoon as good as this? There are tons of junk in his discography, it's true, but there also are lots of extremely good things.

    He has more than one song of sheer beauty.

    This song is amazingly beautify...applying the infinite monkeys with typewriters for infinity logic, put out 66 + albums of abject noise and you get one song of sheer beauty. God bless Jandek....

    This so so eerily beautiful; like a 150-year-old photograph of a mysterious young woman with a faraway gaze... This is art.
