I had never seen anyone like he/r and fell under the spell of her voice and unique sense of humor and melancholy. A week later, I was at a gallery opening in SoHo, one of those sardine-can spaces where you can barely walk and hardly breathe. Being relatively small, I got pressed into a corner where I inadvertently stepped on someones toes. I turned to apologize and there was Genesis smiling, talking with the Icelandic singer Björk, he/r gold-capped teeth glittering down over me.
