Threshold
by Rachel Hadas (1948-, Questions in the Vestibule)

The in-between is queasy,
but all is in between.

Midsummer green? Monotonous
when everything is green.

The sea? A glittering question
if everything is sea.

This vestibule? Unsettling.
I teeter first one way

and then the other. In
or out? I am a fool

to be so caught off balance.
All is vestibule.

sounds of Melbourne (by way of Chicago and New York)

Honey Dijon (DJ), live, Melbourne, 2018

 

Honey Dijon grew up on the south side of Chicago, in a family that she describes as very musical. She began clubbing during her mid-teens with her parents’ acceptance as long as her academics did not suffer.
