Day 30, 30-day #candleflame challenge.

“As essence turns to ocean,/the particles glisten./Watch how in this candleflame instant/blaze all the moments you have lived.” ~Rumi

Pretty.

Angry.

Tongues and lips.

The soft parts.

Lipstick put on in the rear view mirror

To be smeared in the back seat.

Rough leather jackets

Punk rock and pink lace.

Hearts beating through

Wet t-shirts on the beach.

Pin-up posters of

All of us.

Pretty

Angry

Tongues and lips

The soft parts.

Gin and cigarettes.

Your mouth on mine.

American Goddesses

Open and showing.

Everything on their sleeve

In their hearts

In their minds.

Usually

Covering the pink parts.

Cause that’s too much

Unless it’s hanging on a wall.

Or in a magazine.

Not then, not today.

Earth mother

Mother earth.

Love it when you shine.

Open and showing.

All the way.

Lenore “Lee” Krasner was an American abstract expressionist painter from Brooklyn in the second half of the 20th century. She is one of the few female artists to have had a retrospective show at the Museum of Modern Art. She’s fucking amazing.

Making Space: Women Artists and Postwar Abstraction, MoMa NYC, until August 13.

Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
