In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Faye Dunaway, you did it

Despite all the SoHo
ennui disco
fashion snobs and dodos
you did it you
took a photo and made every elbow
appear in time as a goodbye: a genderbent soliloquy
Goodbye 20th Century

                LET'S ALL CHANT

They should have made a mannequin out of you
I think they did
out of

        MY BODY

Like a Karl Lagerfeld Last Seen Entering the Biltmore

'Til you met Tommy . . .

And when questioned about it you acted, Faye
as if all that murder inverted could say something
like it could transmogrify and become again

as if becoming was just another lyrical attempt to tell
like some kind of Cassandra tell it
To Tommy Lee
Jones la moda, the fashion, the fantasy of the '70s
finally coming home to roost in yr eyes
yr wet Mars windowsill broken eyes
which say

"What I'm trying to do is give an account of the times in which I'm living!"

Murder, like fashion, is a grizzly business

(i.e.,* women's business)

It takes a certain kind of mania to go through with it

Staggering over what sight sewed into you

As if you were just a guest in the house

A woman with a Nikon

Now we don't dare go to SoHo

                where should we go?
