The Shower of Sister Bondage Sister Bondage is this sister who spends her days cros- sing the streets, big and small streets. At the periphery of any big city. With her fist raised high, and her white nun veil, and her glasses on.

Her fist is heavy, her fist is crude, it’s bones, shells and little colourfull metalic shitty links that cling, silencious – it is a spell, cast yeah, a spell on her arm – a spell, why and whom, we don’t know.

She wants to heal them all, people. She wants revolution, with her bony fist raised so high in the streets when she walks, but instead they all get a hard-on – that’s how it is and how it happens.

This morning she takes a shower and sings:

A still – Volcano – Life –
That flickered in the night – When it was dark enough to do Without erasing sight

– Adorable sorceress,
do you love the damned?
