Our Death 28 / Dancer (after Emmy Hemmings)
I guess they’ve probably got me on their death-list somewhere. Probably quite far down. Not that I’m bothered - I’ve always been fairly careful inside my life, am quiet and am often frightened. One day they smashed my heart. Since then I’ve been getting sicker, getting wilder. So what. The Angel of Death - if that’s what they call it - is on my side. I’m going to keep on dancing till they get me. They can nail me into whatever filthy little grave, I’ll never snitch on anyone. I’ll kiss half the world. The rest I’ll tear their bellies out.
All these banners and people and songs. Its like I’m flying through caverns, through grottoes and mythical tunes. I have bit-parts in other people’s dreams. I interpret their faces. The old, the sick, the beautiful and the hot, all of them mesmerise me. How lonely I am. A black cross in the centre of my room.
