This is an extremely well written, thought out discussion on stars and expectations and double standards tearing people apart. If not sure you want to read/skim it all... Scroll down to the last 2 paragraphs. - John K-N
This weekend at the amazing Basilica Soundscape festival in Hudson, New York, Perfect Pussy singer Meredith Graves gave a spoken word piece that just might have become a manifesto. People wept, people laughed, people cheered, the New York Times enthused and one of Soundscape’s organizers suggested that Gravesrun for president. It was the talk of the whole festival and no one who saw it will ever forget it.
At the Talkhouse, we figured you might want to read what all the excitement was about. Here is Graves’ piece, in its entirety. We invite your thoughtful comments.
Hi! I work as art director for wednesday early mag, an argentinian magazine about photography and illustration. I'm looking for photographers (and visual artists) that would like to show their work on our next editon.

I am proud to announce the release of my second ambient album, The Sleeper's Night Journey. This is a concept album about the dream world. It can be purchased as a digital download, with a physical CD release to come soon.
Many thanks, and I hope that all who purchase it will greatly enjoy it.
...to be held as Your Love Immortal,
in your ever-loving eyes,
to be held in the presence of your care,
despite the barriers of whatever comes,
whether it be circumstance,
or things that lie beyond.
To be beheld as beloved in the deepest parts of thee,
as I set my love free to chase thee in Lavender Fields,
brushed with the winds of Loves eternal memory:
I seek all this in more in the memory of your gaze,
that gaze that leaves me in a haze that lies beyond both joy and pain.
I never knew that I could be immortal in a beloveds eyes,
never knowing this til I met your eyes in that precious moment,
when our gazes first lock,
and we know of the love that lay between us,
with reverence and with power,
as we still hold that love in loving gazes now in and eternal hour.
I touch your face with a Moonlit gentleness and hue,
touching a Sun that lights now all my days,
leaving me wondering if immortality is possible without thee,
and what eternity would be like without your smile.
My soul reaches across the divides of both times and space,
as I sigh and think upon your enchanting face,
leaving a space in my heart that is made for you and only you,
as hues of Lavender and sunlit dreams,
they dance through the streams of a moonlit mystery,
rivers of mysterious memory running beneath a look of love and a sigh of almost forgotten history,
the history that lies between two souls that never truly depart.
I shall remember it always,
the day that you looked up on me and showed me what it means to be immortal,
what it means to be the object of utterly devotional affection,
and I treasure it now and always,
the feeling of immortality that lies now within the heart of me...
