Minatory

Not from the song "Homage to Marat," belted out last night at St. Ann's Warehouse by Justin Vivian Bond, who warmed up for The Tiger Lilies, an ensemble of impeccable performers:

Fighting all the gentry and fighting every priest,
Businessman, the bourgeois, the military beast


I heard minatory, not military--though the passing visual image was that of a labyrinth. How pretty, I thought. Minatory really is a very pretty word.
