  • “Why We Build the Wall” is one of the few songs in my life that I wrote very quickly, almost before I understood what it meant. It was 2006 and I was living in Vermont. The song went into the first staging of Hadestown and then quickly became, at my songwriter shows, the one everyone wanted to hear. There’s much I could say about it—and how its meaning continues to change as the world changes—but I’d rather leave that conversation to the audience. It is, after all, a series of questions, and my guess is that the conversation it provokes is worth more than any statement I could make. Instead, here’s a little anecdote about the song’s language and where it may have come from. In college, I studied abroad in Cairo, Egypt. My Arabic Lit professor was an older woman with dark eyeliner who took it upon herself to introduce leftist, bohemian values to a generation of distracted young Egyptians. She barely concealed her disdain for then-president Hosni Mubarak, and expressed nostalgia for the 1960s and the populist president Gamal Abdel Nasser in particular. “What did Nasser call the citizens?” she asked the students, who remained silent, some gazing into mobile phones. “‘Brothers and sisters’!” she said. “And what does Mubarak call us? ‘My children’…“

  • Resolution

    We crossed the road of despair

    Holding hands the entire time

    I feel like a canary in a coal mine

    You told me you were fine


    Where are you now

    That I looked behind me?

    A sadder death

    Than a poet’s suicide, surely


    If you find her

    Say the Fates made me do it

    It would be no excuse

    But it’s a sweet finale to an old tale

  • orpheus really said, “don’t worry mr. hades, I’m gonna help you fix your marriage!!” and hades said “ok, I’m going to pry into each and every one of your insecurities, and pick into each of your doubts, until you wonder if you, yourself are even worthy of being loved,” and orpheus said “what???” and hades said “what??????????”
