Lovely, Dark and Deep

I created this new piece for KT Bryski, an award-winning author. Have a listen!

This piece was commissioned for Six Stories, Told At Night, made possible through funding by the Ontario Arts Council.

“Venez, venez, ma fille.
Venez, venez au bois.

Tell me memory, tell me dream:
Red, red blood,
And white, white bone.

Tell me anger, tell me love:
Deep, dark woods,
And sharp, white teeth.

Venez, ma fille, and tell the tale:
The once and the ever,
The time and the after.
The beginning, the end,
This gift and farewell.

Venez, venez, ma fille.
Venez, venez au bois.
Venez, venez, ma fille,
Il était une fois…”
