in the way you kept yourself shoulda known that you'd raise hell living in a back-end street living where the wild things meet you never knew what you gave and the reason that you left this world see your long blonde hair and the way you kept it where anybody that saw you walk knew that they weren't ones to talk and they know it was not right the way he took your life that night and i see you waiting, waiting for a call you'd do it better than them all walking at the ball born into a world that gave so little of a shit about you and the way you loved yourself in the only way you knew how to do but baby girl baby girl this world ain't meant for you for me, it's all too evil and i see you waiting, you're waiting for a call with your little back up against the wall and you'd do it better than them all walking at the ball

about

Released on Trans Day of Remembrance, "Audrey" and "Walking at the Ball" honor the lives of Audrey Howell and Venus Xtravaganza, respectively. Audrey was a local Portland musician and a close friend of my ex before her passing in early 2020. Venus was a drag ball performer in 1980s NYC until her murder in 1988, which was left unsolved. Both of these women were passionate artists beloved by many, their bright lights extinguished too soon.
