should i name you after my favorite singers?
i wish i could remember how i fell in love with laura.
janis and joni are easier to explain.
but laura remains an enigma (and my favorite, should i be so bold as to name a favorite among my women.)
is it pain? is it joy? is it the intricate musicality? is it the raw emotion of her voice? or its clarion tone? the only answer is: all of those. and true of the three of them; they spoke the second language my heart was speaking when i was a young man.
