Katie Jane on ‘Dog Song’ –
« hey pop music not sure i want to be a reasonable person and how the twisted rope of dog song garbled, incoherent, improvised ‘holes in a red rag, i’m caught on a rock’ and how the girls divided into oysters and the boys into girls and their faces shook off and the house across the road collapsed it had been braced for months when a misinformed builder malleted down a supporting wall and i loved him considering what i am i am remarkably well the switches and clicks in my body, picking up boys at bus stops (losing the sacred notebook), it’s just music – divine feminine and masculine having a bit of an earthbound tussle, the police were not involved, don’t make light of it, make light of it, let’s be friends liar flower says, ‘is dog song a political statement or did your boyfriend just prefer boys?’ hustle and blood cockeyed, mum’s plea after daughter abducted by dad the holy trinity of divine feminine/divine masculine AND their daughter sarah, goddess in my suitcase, i am ALWAYS doing her work »
