Elsa Is Involved in a Clandestine Love Affair by Angela Veronica Wong
There is no fixed place and by that I mean take a look at things that are. Split by the turn of year, its newness and all it brings, which of its possibilities can we trust? Elsa is involved in a clandestine love affair which, let's be honest, should be all love affairs until they're over. She finds herself dreaming of children and many other delicacies. Sugared eggs. A lost palace. But night brings a great expanse and it's much too quiet in these hallways. On her back, Elsa holds her breath, her hands beneath her, resisting, resisting. That temptation can be such a dirty rat.
"'Elsa Is Involved in a Clandestine Love Affair' is from a series of sonnets about a fictional mistress of Louis XV. The series explores persona and character, gendered emotional saturation, and legacies of colonialism by juxtaposing 18th-century language and historical detail with modern phrases and contemporary culture." —Angela Veronica Wong
Angela Veronica Wong is the author of Elsa: An Unauthorized Autobiography, forthcoming in 2017 from Black Radish Books. She lives in New York City.
