A Cheeky Business
“A Cheeky Business”
She’s crazy mad
laugh out loud
when you are
(LadyLabyrinth / 2021)
“Look” / Sébastien Tellier
“Ours is essentially a tragic age,
so we refuse to take it tragically.
The cataclysm has happened,
we are among the ruins,
we start to build up new little habitats,
to have new little hopes.
It is rather hard work:
there is now no smooth road into the future:
but we go round, or scramble over the obstacles.
We’ve got to live,
no matter how many skies have fallen.”
D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley's Lover
“When we get out of the glass bottles of our ego,
and when we escape like squirrels turning in the
cages of our personality
and get into the forests again,
we shall shiver with cold and fright
but things will happen to us
so that we don't know ourselves.
Cool, unlying life will rush in,
and passion will make our bodies taut with power,
we shall stamp our feet with new power
and old things will fall down,
we shall laugh, and institutions will curl up like
“Life and love are life and love,
a bunch of violets is a bunch of violets,
and to drag in the idea of a point
is to ruin everything.
Live and let live,
love and let love,
flower and fade,
the natural curve,
which flows on,
