Attention Seeking Behavior

holiness for you
was always in the quiet
of the world,
never in the flesh of another.

the blood you lick from your lips
must taste like freedom.

- Emily Palermo, excerpt of Artemis

opalborn:

That summer, all the roses died.
The moon set at quarter-full
and vanished for three days.
None of us knew
what to tell him.
She is gone
beyond the reach of storm or sin.
The wells dried up,
slimes of moss revealed
then brown and brittle in a day.
The birds fled. We found

» Memento Mori/Vanitas
By Philippe de Champaigne, Evert Collier, 
Adriaen van Utrecht, Bartholomäus Bruyn, David Bally, Franciscus Gysbrechts

When in overly moralized interpretations we reduce such paintings to pictorial sermons on vanity, we fail to grasp adequately the ambiguous wholeness of these images, which prompt us to reflect not upon mortality alone, but upon the ways in which life and death define each other. No label such as “vanity of vanities” or “death conquers all” or even “carpe diem” adequately conveys the complexity of such pictures, which are about both life and death, about being in and departing this world, about pleasure and its passing
