Excerpts from The Drunken Boat by Rimbaud
Then I bathed in the Poem of the Sea
Infused with the stars, the milk-white spume blends,
Grazing green azures: where ravaged, bleached
Flotsam, a drowned man in dream descends.
I’ve seen the archipelagos of stars! And isles
Whose maddened skies open for the sailor:
— Is it in depths of night you sleep, exiled,
Million birds of gold, O future Vigour?
But, truly, I’ve wept too much! The Dawns
Are heartbreaking, each moon hell, each sun bitter:
Fierce love has swallowed me in drunken torpors.
O let my keel break! Tides draw me down!
If I want one pool in Europe, it’s the cold
Black pond where into the scented night
A child squatting filled with sadness launches
A boat as frail as a May butterfly.
Bathed in your languor, waves, I can no longer
Cut across the wakes of cotton ships,
Or sail against the pride of flags, ensigns,
Or swim the dreadful gaze of prison ships.

and when youre near
its like the sun shines warm on my skin its like a part of me blooms a bit more
01 / 14 being with you makes me smile grace
when we take quick pictures in front of pretty walls worn and scratched up in the most perfect spots we smile quickly and diana snaps a picture as a car rolls in and for a moment we smile our best so that we can take note of you and i, us ; i forced my smile then (don’t we all, for pictures?) but i did it because i wanted to have a reminder that i am very happy
to be with you.
