On the subject of Candy Darling…

I’ve always rather loved this poem she wrote:


When you stroll into a party
and the heads neglect to turn,
When you’re sipping a Bacardi
and your face begins to burn –
… that’s stardusk

When the dinner’s in your honor
but your honor doesn’t matter,
When you’re making a profound statement
but the guests begin to chatter –
… that’s stardusk

When the glitter on your eyelids
and your sequins start to tarnish,
When pancake fails to do the trick
and the next resort is varnish –
…that’s stardusk

When the spotlight slowly dims
and you’re regretting all your sins,
When memories that you hold so dear
are all that’s left of your career –
…that’s stardusk

I don’t know why they didn’t use that in the film…
