For now this just collects the poem/prose stuff from the old version of the site.
In the future it will be a bit different. Currently learning how to retool WordPress software so bear with us.
This new internet stuff is still over my head but it’ll click soon enough. Grindgrindgrind.

I’m almost positive the library of Somnium Underground   dnuorgrednU muinmoS fo yrarbil eht evitisop tsomla m’I
holds works that will far surpass anything either my   ym rehtie gnihtyna ssaprus raf lliw taht skrow sdloh
brother or myself have been able to produce thus far.   .raf suht ecudorp ot elba neeb evah flesym ro rehtorb
If all goes well we will release a series of recordings   sgnidrocer fo seires a esaeler lliw ew llew seog lla fI
from various eras in the worlds history, and begin   nigeb dna ,yrotseh sdlorw eht ni sare suoirav morf
reinterpreting many of them for live performance.   .ecnamrofrep evil rof meht fo ynam gniterpretnier
If possible we will also begin translating and releasing   gnisaeler dna gnitalsnart nigeb osla lliw ew elbissop fI
many of the written works found within.   .nihtiw dnouf skrow nettirw eht fo ynam

This may mark the beginning of the end of NSB works.   .skrow BSN fo dne eht fo gninnigeb eht kram yam sihT

I will try and make regular updates anytime I journey   yenruoj I emityna setadpu raluger ekam dna yrt lliw I

Wish me luck.   .kcul em hsiW
