Sewer covers are different all around the world- did you know? And they each say the name of their town. There are hundreds of millions of towns in the world- did you know? And each town is made of different colors. New shades of green, red, grey, gold. Blue blurs lucid grey. And we all have covers over ourselves with a name on them.
Translated by Ellen Conroy Kennedy (via fuckyeahexistentialism)
Sitting by the Seine, its insane
How that ancient church, that solid stone,
White and wise,
Stands in quiet repose,
Knowing all and knowing not
How the red penetrates the wobbly ground
While quivering bodies stumble past
And you and I discover truth.
Have you ever seen iron glow?
Riveted tons of steel flickering?
Balls of diamonds, explosions of stars?
Metal flaming, orange and dark blue.
“Many daughters have done valiantly, but you surpass them all!”
Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
York minster, lace, vikings, rain, and red berry macaroons. London again tomorrow, wearing my new green shoes. Oh and I cut my bangs!
