I like the video, but except for the word "cruel" I can't understand any of the words. :-(

Hopefully I'm back - had to take a bit of time off ... the video is very disturbing, strange. Went with the loss/loneliness feel of it.

Hello Marian, thanks for hosting. Here's my take. I had to download the lyrics; a bizarre song indeed!

The video inspired me... dark indeed.

Interestingly I have just penned a poem called Bodies. Funny that!

I hear you Marian...and St. Vincent. Message received, poem spat out.

Marian said...

Great to see these responses! I'm slow but will be coming around today to check out your offerings.

Thank you, Marian. Caliban could not miss the opportunity for another curse.

I'm late.. Reflecting on childhood with mine

I just went with the feeling of being stuck in the pretense of love.. My first time here. Loved the prompt!

With the predator in chief corrupting the white house
And the revelations about Harvey Weinstein
This is sadly topical

Have added a recording of me reading 'Bodies' after a number of requests.
