"Thought I knew myself so well
all the dolls I had...took my leather
off the shelf, your apocalypse was
fab for a girl who couldn't choose
between the shower and the bath..."
Tori Amos: Hey Jupiter


Past:
I must of slept;
my moon was still grinning at me,
like some crazy chesire cat
but fainter now,
almost dim-winked out of sight
and I remember when I bought this moon,
how you laughed at me
telling me not to waste my time
or my money
on such a useless thing-

Present:
But I've always been a silly girl
buying silly things
and falling too easily
before looking to see on whom
or on what
she was going to land;

Future:
But I did sleep
because now it's glow is gone
just a trace of neon green against my wall-
I did sleep tonight
or else I had my eyes shut tight
to keep myself
to keep myself
from dreaming of you.


"No ones picking up the phone
guess it clear- he's gone
and this little masochist
is lifting up her dress
guess I thought I could never
feel the things I feel and...hey Jupiter."

Interesting piece of work, and may I say something? People can't tell you what is useless, because there might be a use to it that they aren't aware of. Those glow-in-the-dark planet and stars aren't useless to one's imagination, especially a child's imagination. I used to have glow-in-the-dark objects on my room's ceiling for ten years, and when that wasn't enough, I could always look out my window at the stars and falling snow outside. I loved this piece of work, thanks for sharing it with us.

Thanks Artur... and yes, that was sort of my point...what is useless to one- (love, a heart,even a glow in the dark moon) may have a lot of meaning to another.


at one with her silliness- (finally!)
