DiscardThe day I was bornDiscard by CATtheMinion
I fell for you so hard
I broke my spine;
never good enough
to be your brass ring,
your golden pyramid.
You listened to the devil
on your right, and to
the devil on your left.
You wrang me
through both hands;
put me out to dry.
All you really need
is one truth for your freedom.
But you don’t love me.
Am I beautiful?She brushed her fairy-floss hair,Am I beautiful? by SabbathLiterature
Pursed her lips, red as stolen roses,
And asked the mirror, "Am I beautiful?"
The mirror didn't answer.
Her ring read "Sinner",
And if love was a sin, she was the devil.
All she wanted was a velvet-soft man,
With bright beaten-silver eyes.
The gold-edging of her vanity,
Glinted against the gloss of her nails.
These claws could grasp anything.
She's a diamond leopard,
Fierce queen of a terrace jungle.
Her prince was a bottleneck vagrant,
Brown stovepipe pants and wool cap.
His kingdom was built from green glass,
Still picking up his leather boots on that street.
He left his battered old paperback,
In the corner of the alley where he slept.
Letters to a young poet for a fortunate son.
He walked to the factory once again.
She lived with him in absinthe dreams,
A perfect pauper in poppy-scented smoke.
But beautiful dreams will always end,
As she rolls over and pulls silk sheets closer,
The queen of a cold castle.

UPDATE 0/22/15: Coloring Book update: 24 designs, probably will print on amazon. www.facebook.com/TKenyonArt/po…
Original thoughts the other day:
For now, I've decided that I WILL print my coloring book and hand-assemble it. I've got tons of old art that will make nice covers with the stack of construction paper that I've got. I've ordered some 80lb copy paper which should be here within two weeks, at which point I can start printing them. The originals are 9 x 12, but will have to be slightly shrunk to fit within the boundaries of what my printer will do for now on the 8.5 x 11 paper. The 80 weight paper will be a decent drawing weight, and should hold up to markers, crayons, pencils, and light use of acrylics, and maybe watercolors if you don't get too messy. This will be the most satisfying for me, and keep the coloring books with a home-made feel all the way through the process, and should be able to give anyone plenty of relaxation and lots of pretty things to put on your walls.
If I print these myself, I can bring them to hospitals and therapy offices, much more easily than if I went to a large publisher right now. I'm going to set the in-USA price to $25, shipping included. This sounds like a lot for a coloring book, but keep in mind that it's going to cost somewhere between 7 and 10 dollars to ship one of these, and everything is going to be "hand crafted."
If anyone lives nearby me and wants to stop buy and snag one, I'll sell for $15 each and you can just stop by and pick it up.
So buy one for yourself, buy one for your friends, buy some for the old people in the home. It's cheaper and healthier than drugs and alcohol.
I'm also considering getting some colored pencils, cutting them in half, sharpening them, buying some polymer erasers to divy up, and sending them as a "gift pack" with something already set up to color. But I'm not going to do that until these things start paying for themselves.
I'll be done with the "Energy Forms" set fairly soon, and then I'll make a couple more books, because these are fun, and I like the idea of people having a good time playing with them.
And, since these are in some cases, totally ripped off from MY other art, you can basically find prints and merch for sale on my deviant art and my cafe press that match the coloring book sheets.
I haven't figured out what to do yet for good tracking of international shipping. I might see what's up with fed ex.
So get your wallets ready and keep an eye on my pages, I'll be revamping my etsy store and maybe throw a few of these up on ebay as well, just for funzies. And again, if everything runs smoothly, I should have the paper ready to print these within two weeks, and then hopefully I won't run out of black ink! HA!
