Act One

I had started taking sunglasses out with me at night, because I never knew where I'd end up. Where I'd wake up, after how little sleep, and have to walk home in the blazing July morning sun. I wasn't fucking around, I just stayed with different friends because I felt so horribly lonely and scared if I wasn't drunk.

Walking through Williamsburg with Joseph at 5am I told him that I was afraid to go home alone so late, that I was afraid of the Southside Slasher. In reality the murderer would have looked like an Angel of Mercy to me that morning, and all I was really afraid of was being alone. Joseph let me stay with him and I fell asleep immediately, for the first time in a long time, listening to the JMZ shudder.

Act Two

What I had wanted to say to you was; "I wish I was capable of human interactions, of intimacy, of loving someone, having someone, a boyfriend. And I wish that boyfriend was you."

What I actually said to you was; "Stop making it look like I'm trying to fuck you."

You had a boyfriend once, a deaf boyfriend, and everybody said to you; "Oh, you're dating a deaf boy? How sweet of you! How admirable" and no doubt your selflessness turned them on.

You woke up once, crying. You were having a terrible dream and you were crying because you missed your Father, or your Mother, the details are aren't relevant, but your boyfriend, your deaf boyfriend, cradled you in his arms and sang you back to sleep. He sang you something from Cats. God it must have sounded awful.

When you remember this, when you share it with me, you're crying again. You slide off your spectacles (which you wear because I ask you to) and say; "No, no, it's just a funny memory."

Notorious!




Well, that was "Notorious Beauty" at Dixon Place! I had the most incredible time performing it and am genuinely thrilled to have shared the space with some of my favourite performers. The audiences were great, the response was fantastic and so was all the press! Thanks a thousand to Max, Glenn, Brandon, Tucker and Sabrina and to all at Dixon Place.
