Say you’ll remember me
Standing in a nice dress,
Staring at the sunset, babe.
Red lips and rosy cheeks,
Say you’ll see me again
Even if it’s just in your wildest dreams.
— Taylor Swift, “Wildest Dreams”
This started out as simply an African woman sitting on her legs, but then I recalled the Taylor Swift song “Wildest Dreams” from a few years back. The music video for that attracted some controversy because it was set in the African bush but somehow hardly featured any black people in it. Whatever your views on that, I thought the song would make for a nice (if ironic) “theme” for this piece.
