but in the meantime, we do have his music.
may i construct a life that is worthy of this song.
Fury. Betrayal. Rage. Impulsive. Clarity.
I had an argument with an ex-boyfriend a few days ago. It was an argument I should have had months ago but it took me a few months to see him for what he is and become tired. Bone tired. To recount the argument would be

What I can share that isn’t biased is that after I hung up the phone, thinking of this song by Esperanza Spalding and feeling a little bit better.
To me, this is one of the sweetest ways to ask for sex. Let me count the ways….
The phrase ‘a little warm death’ is inspired by the French idiom ‘la petite mort’ which is a metaphor for orgasm. Inserting ‘warm’ between ‘little’ and ‘death’ makes it so inviting, desirable, otherworldly. Wilson’s lyrics build on this feeling:
Come on and relax with me/let me take away your physicality
I can hardly wait to feel you moving through my world, through my world
In a culture that conflates sexual intimacy with crassness & immediate gratification, I feel the anticipation and beauty of climax is restored with Wilson’s beautiful imagery and melody.
