I was a queen, and you took away my crown; a wife, and you killed my husband; a mother, and you deprived me of my children. My blood alone remains: take it, but do not make me suffer long.
It seemed fitting that I “be” Madame Antoinette this Halloween, not that I fancy myself a martyr, rather perhaps I am feeling a close empathic connection to being simultaneously celebrated and condemned for qualities that feel basic and inherent to the very core of who I am. Yes, I know, TOO DEEP for Halloween…and so, in the spirit of the time of year…I will revel with abandon, imitating that which frightens and titillates and hope that you will do the same!
Besides, I have worked too damn hard on this costume to be bitter about the whole concept…
So…instead I will simply say:
LET THEM EAT CANDY!
Enjoy your Hallloween my goulies, xxx c.
