red skirt in the desert



sky on fire



blue red green



the vatican seems to have moved ...

more words

Aubade

Night bears witness
once again. To limbs weaving

webs of desire. To confessions
that need no grammar, no

words. A sheet has slipped
to the floor, pooled

like moonlight, like music
dripping off ivory keys.

Beneath a blanket,
hearts have synchronized.

A cupped hand gathers
breath, as if that could sustain

darkness a little longer.
But the Earth turns

as it always has, tilting
its face to the light. The sun

rises regardless, feeding
on the last stubborn stars.


song of the day: down boy by the yeah yeah yeahs.

Hi Michaela,

I came upon your blog -- from Sarah Jane's -- and it's a good one. 'Great post, reeeally great photos -- sky on fire is beautiful, pope's nude bar -- well, that one speaks for itself.

And I'm so tempted to steal your idea of "song of the day!" ;) 'With links, too -- good idea to go with your good taste ('love the yeah yeah yeahs).

'Safe travels,
Sara
