The third in a series of occasional recordings intended to be imbibed, digested and consumed with red wine and moonlight.
The Classic is La Scala. the works contained here were delivered to ghosts who lingered in the stalls.
Here is where you brought the gifts of black water, sheep pellets and hill grass to the knees of Mondo Erotica. The light of a certain star takes 21 years to reach me here. In the light, Mary and Fiona hand me fragrant copies of Park Lane Monthly and invite my little boy memory to the Soho Press Bar. Now practise your lines, “Honest mum, we went to see The Empire Strikes Back”
“Late in some evening of your middle age the truth will out. You saw instead the measure of your future. Do you remember lust? I remember it distantly, and almost as well as my innocence. Well, I turned and filled that old porno theatre in the same manner as I have filled cathedrals. I claim my past and I claim that cold star whose light, travelling at 185,000 miles per second, takes 21 years to reach me.”
