A boat as fragile as a May butterfly. No longer can I, bathed in your languor, o waves, Follow in the wake of the cotton boats, Nor cross through the pride of flags and flames, Nor swim under the terrible eyes of prison ships. Arthur Rimbaud, "The Drunken Boat" from Complete Works, Selected Letters, translated by Wallace Fowlie. Reprinted by permission of The University of Chicago Press.

The Drunken Boat Lyrics. As I was floating down unconcerned Rivers I no longer felt myself steered by the haulers: Gaudy Redskins had taken them for targets Nailing them naked to coloured stakes. I cared nothing for all my crews Carrying Flemish wheat or English cottons When, along with my haulers those uproars were done with The Rivers let me sail downstream where I pleased. Almost an island, tossing on my beaches the brawls And droppings of pale-eyed, clamouring birds And I was scudding along when across my frayed cordage Drowned men sank backwards into sleep! But now I, a boat lost under the hair of coves Hurled by the hurricane into the birdless ether I, whose wreck, dead-drunk and sodden with water Neither Monitor nor Hanse ships would have fished up

Le Bateau ivre" ("The Drunken Boat") is a 100-line verse-poem written in 1871 by Arthur Rimbaud. The poem describes the drifting and sinking of a boat lost at sea in a fragmented first-person narrative saturated with vivid imagery and symbolism. Rimbaud, then aged 16, wrote the poem in the summer of 1871 at his childhood home in Charleville in Northern France. Rimbaud included the poem in a letter he sent to Paul Verlaine in September 1871 to introduce himself to Verlaine

There are nods to Krautrock/motorik driving drone ("Home" and "Jubilee," two of the few songs on the album longer than three minutes), Dischord's brisk, wrenching hardcore, and even folk-rock, all combining to make for a distinct package. Accidents" would make for a dreamy, tense number in a fuller length, and still has that, but the guitar from Steve Gross and Todd Serbousek has a punchier effect as a result of its brevity.

Now, I, a boat lost in the hair of the coves, tossed by hurricane into the birdless air, me, whom all the Monitors and Hansa sailing ships could not salvage, my carcass drunk with sea; free, rising like smoke, riding violet mists, I who pierced the sky turning red like a wall, who bore the exquisite jam of all good poets, lichens of sun and snots of azure . All moons are cruel and all suns, bitter: acrid love puffs me up with drunken slowness. Let my keel burst! Give me to the sea!
