Normal History Vol. 441: The Art Of David Lester

Every Saturday, we’ll be posting a new illustration by David Lester. The Mecca Normal guitarist is visually documenting people, places and events from his band’s 33-year run, with text by vocalist Jean Smith.

Once
Once there was the soft glow
of a flare sent

Amber fragment
knocking out the sky

Then there was the darkness after too much light

Arc fallen
wading through the snow

Find the steel
sunk below

Fire in a half plan
shimmer up the cold

Find the steel
sunk below

“Once” from Dovetail (K, 1992) (download):
