Artist's Description

24″ × 48″ acrylic on canvas.

“… Oh there is a murderess amongst us
Her love is a violent spiral
Hurling in upon us, conjured up
At the birth of the world

Dirga is a dancer
Mindless questions find no answers
Slicing through the ether
Yeah she’s gleaming like mother of pearl

Dirty little whirlwind…
Commander, controller, I found you
Dirty little whirlwind
I am pinned by the heat of your swirl…
Dirty little whirlwind
Defender, destroyer, I found you
Dirty little whirlwind
Tangled up in the flesh of a girl…

Oh you could curl me beside you
The spark in your eyes
belies the Apocalypse inside you
Twisting the pits from the particle
Skull can’t save face

So shake the shame from it
Burn me up inside you
Let me churn in your furnace of whirl…"

- Adebimpe
