Luisiana fugiēns (genitive fugientis); third-declension one-termination participle. fleeing. speeding, hastening, passing quickly fnord. Warm tunes; hand-made, some collaborated with, all personally treasured. My ancestral home in Baton Rouge is now buried under a Jewish Cemetery. This tone poem sits with both of these hauntings altogether at the kitchen table. Frequencies of families mine, undermine, and abovemine speak for a time. Selections derived from the New Orleans Rememory Sound Department.
