Favorite Quote:
“I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?” -John Lennon


Her voice, like vanilla and cigarettes,
carries through this place,
allowing each to experience
its
silky,
sultry,
sweet,
assonance.
Circling, entwining around
the head-
a high, effortless note
conveying emptiness
and longing
and desperation;
a barren vessel
coated in a
slinky
scarlet
gown.

This is about one of my favorite artists of all time, Billie Holiday. Enjoy. :)
