Story of Esther
Vashti / We Gaze & We OwnWe own the rights to herbut she will not show.
She whose festival is apart from ourswho will not open her beauty wide
who is the danger that lurksin a man’s own house
like the foreign tongueof a foreign woman.
Esther / I am a Blindness You Must WatchIt does not matter where I am from.I am from somewhere. I am from nowhere.I am from an emptinesseven your dreams do not conjure.
I will come to you for the night when I am calledto reveal to you what I have bathed in myrrh and spices.That is enough.
Three Days of Fasting / We Declare our Spirit, See UsThe they she has not spoken ofgathers in the city streetsand cries up.
They come into view.We come into view.
We become the answerready for the question a whole kingdomhas refused to ask.
Achashverosh / The Three QuestionsWho are your people?Who is the man who would do this?Where is the wrong?
My staff is extended,I am asking.
The Queen / Eyes Opened at LastThere is a man who would murder us.
That is the man who would murder us.You must act against the manwho would murder us.
To Look is to Seek is to Ask is a JusticeWith questions& answersrevelations can come:
I am I.They are I.We.See us.
