I’ll Be Your Mirror

“People are always calling me a mirror, and if a mirror looks into a mirror, what is there to see?”

Andy Warhol

August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987

Here is Nico’s song for Andy, ‘The Falconer’ from her masterpiece Desertshore

And a wonderful version from from Philippe Garrel’s  Le Lit de la vierge

The falconer is sitting on
His summersand at dawn
Unlocking flooded silvercages
And with a silverdin arise
All the lovely faces
And the lovely silvertraces erase
My empty pages

The falconer is sitting on
His summersand at dawn
Beside his singing silverwaves
And his dancing rebelrace
That compose ahead of timeless time
A sound inside my candle light

Father child
Angels of the night
Silver friend
my candlelight

Father child
Angels of the night
Silver friend
my candlelight

The falconer is sitting on
His summersand at dawn
Unlocking flooded silvercages
And with a silverdin arise
All the lovely faces
And the lovely silvertraces erase
My empty pages
