ani difranco

Ani DiFranco - take a wooden match, strike it on the box, point the match down, the burst of flame has settled and crawls up the white balsa wood with gaining speed, before it reaches your fingers turn the match back up, the rhythm isn't what you expected, it is what you sense, the flame dances as white becomes black and black light, count 3 breaths, the room opens up, the flame pushes light on you so that you see yourself in a new light, then try to blow out the match, then really take a deep breath and blow it out.
