When I got home from the ceramics studio tonight Orff’s Carmina Burana was playing on KUSC. (I leave the radio on for Juki so he does not feel lonely). This piece always makes me smile. I think it’s great when classical musical merges with popular culture- even to the point when it’s almost kitsch. (Magic Flute ringtones? Yes I have heard them on the street outside the Disney Concert Hall but that’s another story… ) So I’m not sure which orchestra was broadcasting tonight but here is a performance I found on YouTube.
The best know piece is “O Fortuna”. When you listen to this you will have flashbacks of multiple media moments. Totally kitsch!
we had a fight
and then you left
and then we reconciled
and then you died
in a bicycle accident
on the Cesar Chavez bridge
coming home to me
The Lot 2001 Kickstarter Campaign is going strong! Come Join Us!
I wrote these poems in 1994-1995 when I was working as a dominatrix in NYC. This zine was first published in 1996 when I was a graduate student at CalArts and taking a zine-making class with author Nicole Panter. It’s hard to believe that all of this was over twenty years ago and that I am now fifty-five years old! If you want to know the thirty-something Margie you will find her in this zine!
