Clip of the shears
Twist of her hair
To the air, handsomely
'Til it floated down among the clouds
Reflected on the glassy sea
And the winds disappear
Stripped almost bare
Bathed in a transfixed state
And all things are what they seem to be
She floated next to me
Just out of reach
Astronautalis // The Wondersmith and His Sons
The brothers born a wondersmith,
we started as a team.
By complimenting cogs and gears we built a head of steam.
The tragic flaw of charming men
is exactly as it seems,
too much grease,
can break down a machine.
The charm and confidence of men,
can jam the bullets in your gun,
and stop heartbeats.
John Anster Fitzgerald (British, 1819-1906)
Fairies in a Bird’s Nest, 1860. Legion of Honor Museum, San Francisco
John Anster Fitzgerald was a reclusive, self-taught artist. His fairy paintings create surreal, hallucinatory landscapes and characters. Some of his titles, such as The Pipe Dreamer, suggest a connection with opium. His last painting was for Alice in Wonderland in 1902.
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice when I’m not around
You’re so fucking special
I wish I was special
