The Wrecking Ball. [Wednesday, Feb. 25th, 2009|12:55 pm]
The richest girl in town.
One, two, three. One, two, three.

First a fugue, then a waltz,
finally tarantella: ten musicians playing
ten different songs at the same time.

Taffeta and lace spinning through the air:
she flies about under her own power,
but she's out of control.

Each handhold a heavy leash of steel:
metallic elastic stretched at full velocity
snaps, reeling her back in again.

The impending impact: a smack of iron
against brick, breasts against chest,
all atoms smashing to the beat, a crescendo.

A deafening death: destruction dances
in a 125-pound body, a nuclear holocaust
clothed in skin, hair like a hundred fuses lit.

One, two, three. One, two, three. Three, two, one--

Oh, thanks. I checked out the site before. I need to sit down and figure out what to submit.

Also, when are you coming to town again?

Perfect. It seems I'll be working all that weekend beginning Friday morning, I think, so yay.

And thanks for poking me to submit. I've been really bad at that lately. Also, there's a community called youmustsubmit you might want to post a call to.

Hey, turns out I fudged the dates, and the gig is this weekend--so whatever time works for you is fine for me. :)
