A Cheeky Business

“A Cheeky Business”
Hot Cross Buns You smile when She’s crazy mad She’s so cheeky all Her bullets are diamonds She makes you laugh out loud when you are grey skies sad She's a terrible poet kind of cute kind of good kind of bad (LadyLabyrinth / 2021)
“Look” / Sébastien Tellier https://youtu.be/8jL0vy2YaDg
“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 burnt paper.” D.H. Lawrence “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, and follow the natural curve, which flows on, pointless.” D.H. Lawrence

Rosey cheeks and a hot summers breeze, the enchantment, the sting of the bee... firing squad at dawn...voluptuous bullets.. encapsulation within their song. xx

Lovin' Bridgerton...50 Shades gone all Regency. I've obviously over-indulged.
