The wind keeps blowing.
The door keeps opening.
Will you be with me, my dear Lucy,
When I look for candy
Down there in the dark, dark kitchen?

The wind keeps crying.
The door keeps shaking.
Will you be with me, my dear Lucy,
When I pick up my toy puppy
Out there on the high, high balcony?

Wish you could always be with me
And make them go away with your Do-Re-Me.
I remember last Halloween
They ran away when you started to sing,
Dear Tommy, my little king,
Close your eyes and have a sweet dream.

So please stay with me and sing
To stop them kicking the door, riding the wind,
And pulling me down to their house under the ground.
They’ll go away if you sing here for me,
In a voice that gets a black cat’s hair standing,
The strongest legs shaking, and the window glass breaking.

(ideas from Matthew Sweeney’s poem)

Karen Finley was born in the U.S. in 1956. When she was only fourteen, she became interested in performing. She graduated from a performing arts school in 1981 and then began to perform in theaters. In her performances, she showed people some of the problems in the world.

Karen's The Constant State of Desire was first performed at The Kitchen in New York City in 1986. In this performance she wanted people to notice some of the difficult experiences women have because of men. It soon became controversial. Many people did not feel comfortable with the performance. They thought that Karen hated men too much and was out of control. She was strongly criticized by the newspapers. But some other people thought differently and spoke for her.

Subject:Daniel’s 5th Birthday PartyThis Saturday!

Hello Dave,

We’re happy to invite you and your family to Daniel’s fifth birthday party this Saturday.

We know we told you that the party would be in 37 . However, we just moved to Carlton City last month, so the party won’t be in Pattersons Town. It’ll be at Mosman Garden right next to Victor Zoo, just across from our new apartment. Please don’t go to Northbank Park next to our old house.

The weather report said that it may be rainy this weekend, but 38 . If it rains, we’ll move the party inside our home. However, if we’re 39 and it is fine, we’ll still have the party at the garden.

Again, we’re all very happy and excited to welcome you to join us for some fun this weekend!

Best,

Mia, Sam & Daniel
