about

Dedicated to Yvette.

lyrics

She stopped
For a minute
White as October
We all thought
She might never come back
Thought that she had cashed out or crossed over
Her quiet lips
Looked quite finished
Had she forgotten how to speak?
How to breathe?

We pulled her through water
Like to baptise her
We all thought
She might come out the other side
Changed by the dream of the diver
Her silent wish
Undiminished
Had she forgotten how to pray?
How to be?

Easily
Easily

She flew around the room
Once or twice
Saying
"isn't it nice
to be in this other other other
space!"
And when she crashed in my lap
Doll-eyes blinking
Straight up I sat
A cold breath down my back
Clasping cold hands
Glad she was back

Or did I wish I was gone
That easily
Easily
Be no more
Be no more

She stopped
For a minute
White as October
We all thought
She might never come back
Thought she had cashed out or crossed over
Her quiet lips
Looked quite finished
Had she forgotten how to speak?
How to breathe?

Easily
Easily

Slip away
Be no more
Slip away

Easily

about

Diana Rosalind New Orleans, Louisiana

After being discovered by Bobby McFerrin as a young vocal improviser in San Francisco, I spent some years writing and performing with ensembles that remain important in the history of Bay Area arts, then did time tangling with the music biz in LA & NYC, followed by a decade in Europe, recording all the while, before coming "home" to NOLA. This is a partial musical record of that journey. ... more
