Kaci Lambe: Siren


When I read the about the sirens [in The Odyssey], it was like, holy shit, I do this, whether I want to or not. I sink people at the rocky cliffs at my feet. . . .

There’s a part of me that identifies with wanting to sink people. There’s a power in that. And there’s like a dangerous, not very nice, dark allure in having that kind of power.

On the other hand, I also love people. I love my friends. I really don’t want them to feel pain at my hand. So I’m in conflict with that. That’s actually something I’m trying to work through, rectifying that conflict with myself.
