"Fashion is so often presented in our culture as a thing of froth, which of course,
it partly is; but the bubbles are blown with such care and a sense of values."
- Anna Wintour

Sheltered Spines

I was seated less then a meter away.
She sang her heart out, barefoot. 
On bare concrete. Bare boned.
Broken concrete. Surprisingly warm.


The more holes in her shirt the more charming. I counted four.
Playing and plucking and singing.
The evolution of Latin spilled from her voice.
Her pains

I'm sure that England was in her heart
     I'm sure that wine ran through her veins    


     and then day breaks..
