Why I Like La Boheme

The characters are artists, poets.

They burn furniture for warmth.

They eat little, drink wine.

Their makeup runs under the lights.

They sing in theatrical rags

as though each aria were their last.

–Excerpt from “Why I Like La Boheme” from Hanging Like Hope on the Equinox by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective 2013). First published in Dream Catcher (U.K.).
