A kind of anarchic fantasy, "the circular heavens" begins with a videotape of a young man Mental patient talks about a physical disorder and ends with that person (now performing) Running an electric saw through a sheet of paper from a music stand.

A harmony prevails
the cacophonous activities of dysfunction are redirected by the
young man's vision of life
a poem reveals the truth and hope in pain's humbling message:
seek wholeness, compassion and simplicity.
There is a spiritual unity therein.
