Do Not Breathe ~ Tran Nguyen

Look into my eyes scarecrow
Buttons bright burning hedgerow
Talk to me of crow and raven
Magpie mind and turncoat haven

Let me fly far away from there
Where buildings lean and people stare
Leave behind all memory
Of the daily killing spree

what can i tell you, dear muse
when truth has a billion hues?
i was a tree who cared for crows
they cut me into a cross to scare them as foes

Nguyen's awesome, isn't she?

Dig the poem. You're either being more straightforward, or I've finally started hanging around here enough. Heh.

She doesn't look happy that she is standing in the rain. Good for the artist.

Human Being: when I said "talk to me of crow and raven" I never suspected that you would do just that - thanks :D

Jeff: not sure if this is straight forward; I guess it's more literal. I'm digging your new avatar btw.

Tom: yeah?

Budd: wet feet will put that expression on your face. Thanks for visiting :]
