Schwerer Vögelregen
auf nacktem Baum:
so leicht vibrierend
von lebendigen Blättern
kleidet er sich.

Aber der Schwarm stiebt
hellblauer Februar
liegt mit dem Abend
auf den Zweigen.

Zart ist mein Leib,
entblößt für die Flüge
des Schattens.

(19. Februar 1935 by Antonia Pozzi, 1912-1938)

Huuuuuuuuge thanks to Meagan and Thomas for sending me Christmas presents. I'd never even dreamt that anyone would actually click on the Amazon® button. You're not only extremely generous, you also proved that you have exquisite taste. Yoshitomo Nara and Charles Burns are indeed two of my favourite artists/writers ever. Thankies! <3

    Thank you soooooo much, my dear Meagan! The book was even wrapped in magic green paper with a lovely satin ribbon that I later put in my not so angelic hair. :D

    1. A few days ago I emailed the link to "TattooMan" to my brother, whose step-son looks very much like the fellow in the video (and he's a chef, too),
    2. I gave my brother's wife a book of Yoshitomo Nara's work for her birthday, a year ago--and she sent it back to me, no explanation, and
    3. I took my geriatric cat ("The Abbot")to the animal hospital this evening, he's not well at all--

    a wave-form phenomenon, I'm thinking
