BLACK DAHLIA TEA SALON
was very melancholy
we hosted an intimate salon for dahlia devotees and discussed the many theories to her early demise.
i served my guests
assam flowery tea from jackson & piccadilly~ london
with or without~ black sugar
assorted dark chocolate
orange wedges from kate's garden
we then went on a black dahlia field trip-
first to BOARDNERS BAR where she frequently drank spirits,
then to alto nido where she once lived with 6 other aspiring starletts.
then onto the lloyd wright designed house on franklin where some say she was murdered by dr. george hodel
and finally to leimert park where her severed body was left.
antebellum diva~ talea and myself laid a lavender rose, (provided by raven shadowmoon)
where her body was found 68 years ago~ yesterday.
