Hangings, guillotines
unusual punishments
heads hanging on spikes
the public persecutions
humiliations, examples
freely implemented
discipline is preventions
freedom diversions
Independence the foe
kill it, bury it
logic, the freethinker
censure it, burn it
for an iron fist
is so much better
than a beating heart.

I'm an artistic soul that can't quite live without exploring all expects of art. I'd probably die painting in my garden. I've been that way since I was born. Passionately in love with nature, trying to find ways to express it. Poetry spills out with breath from me and I can't look at even trash without admiring its aesthetic. If you ever spot me anywhere, I promise you'll find me either laughing or lost in beauty that no one's yet spotted.
