“The beauty of artifacts is in how they reassure us we’re not the first to die.”

– Simon Van Booy, Everything Beautiful Began After

Made In Heights – Marguerite

Watching planes on golden afternoons
And Saturn’s floating moons rising over the interstate
In my baby’s skin chasing at the wind
Had a lot to learn I was so stern
So I braided my hair into a million
Mistakes so full of feeling
Bleeding to find the reasons for this delicate pain
And as these seeds I thought died in my growing pains
Spring in your eyes
Flowers appear

And it feels like the weight of the world
Suspended in two hemispheres
One side me, one side always you
Cause the weight of the world
Holds everybody’s seasons
Sing me to sleep now

And you are my clock
You’re my favourite part
Of waking up
I don’t need my eyes to know you

“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”

“The problem with gender is that it prescribes how we should be, rather than recognizing how we are.”

– Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
