Tanya Donelly, Live--San Francisco
Theramin, siren, troubadour,
flirt. You choose bourbon
over bottled water, choose to play
the challenging stuff.
Opalescent--marble, gristle, mist and milk.
Nettle honey, raw with pollen
and with parts of bees. Warning:
Supple woman, uncompliant.
Warning: Strong hands, compound eyes, secrets
Free will, laughter, Arctic shadow, phosphorescent light.
