Torch Song


Notes

bruised and blustery.

inspired by Neko Case's 'Blacklisted' (2002), Margaret Atwood's 'Morning in the Burned House' (1995), and the films of Theda Bara...

"Like breath or a balloon, I’m rising,
I hover six inches in the air
in my blazing swan-egg of light.
You think I’m not a goddess?
Try me.
This is a torch song.
Touch me and you’ll burn."

-Margaret Atwood, from "Helen of Troy does Countertop Dancing"

with music from Patsy Cline to Sade
