Artist's Description

Speak softly. The storm may hear you. It rages just beyond the curtains. Dancing showers of sequins fall from lightening bolts over rooftops, into cracks between brick walls, over punch bowls and onto plates left with half eaten pieces of cake. The shimmer of linen at the window waves to enter, to escape, to burn, to excite, to play with electric limbs that circle the courtyard with a chorus line of plodding feet. The shouts say they are from the sun. Yet I know better. It is heat from shadows that pulses from cloudbursts of liquid flame growing hot whenever they are noticed. So don’t even look at them. They will grow brighter. Stay inside. And speak softly. Though I know I am really outside. And they are in. I can always pretend to be hiding. It’s easier than pretending to live. At least for a while.
