all dead, all dead

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,

Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,

Silence the pianos and with muffled drum

Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

For my poor plastic black flowers are dead.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,

Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,

Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods;

For nothing now can ever come to any good.

just kidding.

  41. Did I sleep through the day you posted this one? I can’t believe I missed it. It’s gorgeous.
