We went South until there was no South left
Beyond the stormclouds, satellites & stars
I tried to memorise you the moment we first met
But you become more lost each day
Another layer in the landscape

We taught each other loneliness
My breath in the back of your throat
Yours in the back of mine
Swarms of flies hum in the canopy of Summer forests
& blood hums in the long silences between heartbeats
Until it's just you, out there with the quiet

We went North until there was no North left
Beyond the last places, the blanks on the map
I wanted to wait for you where it was Summer
But I guess you were always going to go where I could not follow.

-David Colohan

The Void and the Brightness Inseparable

Divil A' Bit divide their time between recording indoors in anonymous spaces, abandoned houses and crumbling churches and outdoors in dense and forgotten forests, beneath canal bridges & within the passages of megalithic tombs.
