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
and scars.

Warning:

Free will, laughter, Arctic shadow, phosphorescent light.
