starbucks is a glorified babysitter

new look american apparelnew look american apparel
outtake, close up and words

The remains of an unwitting cover up
Blown across the stage.
Last night's curtain,
a rain shower,
Has hidden everything else.

The performers slumber in reality,
Art for art's sake
They care not for the intricacies of regularity
Stirring already
black. grey. navy. white.
Dampened nighttime misdeeds.

I don't really like posting my poetry here, but some people said they'd like to see more (and my friend said he liked it)

Today there was drama at work (involving two resigned policemen), I went to a BBC recording of Jarvis Cocker and Steven Merchant, and I currently have a wagamamas baby.

dress (worn as tee); new look kids. belt; charity shop. cardigan; charity shop. skirt; american apparel. nail polish; nail inc (it had been on for a day, and I can't be bothered to edit photos today)
I did have a "proper" outfit shot (+long socks and boots) but I decided against posting. You're not missing out on much.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Blogs are a great place to showcase your poetry, when you already have an audience! Isn't that the problem with writing in general, finding an audience!

    Mmm, I'm kind of jealous of your wagamamas baby. I loved that place!

  72. I know nothing about poetry but your poem is rather lovely, really! I'm sort of a nitwit and I didn't really get in entirely but I almost never do with poems. It just sounds very lovely, those lines that you composed

    And in regards to your comment about my tights ^^ I agree but I hate the way that pervy men make me feel inappropriate by not even trying to hide their looks. End of rant ^^

  73. Oh wow, your poetry is amazing! I feel embarrassed sharing certain things too, and poetry is really personal but your followers really seem to love it!

  85. That movie is amazing it grows on me day by day
    thank you for your comment btw :)

  86. I love the line "intricacies of regularity" it pulls up fascinating images in my head of every tiny detail in the mundane. Im not sure thats what you were going for, but it is excellent.
    ps-my super high waist skirt was such a steal, I had tried it on in the spring but it was just too expensive and I popped into Zara for their sale, and there it was, in my size, very deeply discounted. ugh I love when that happens!

  91. BBC recording sounds splendid, would love to hear more about it. New header is positively delightful, both happy and sad to have caught up (sad because now I am stranded with nothing to read)... Also, Cohen, is it your surname? Forgive me but I get terribly excited when I sense fellow Jewish blood (:
