runaway on a sunday



"Up in the hills around Coldwater Canyon
were the houses that hung


 from the mountainside on poles, 
balancing dangerously on the cliff,
like the spinning-plate act in a sideshow...
Dangerous homes where dangerous parties took place every night.

My blouse is thrifted.

Parties where nobody really knew
or even liked anyone else,
but we all pretended that we did.
 


Parties where we talked a lot, but said very little.

My purse is also thrifted.

The years have gone on, and music
and fashion have changed,


but the spinning-plate homes still do their balancing act up there, 


and the spinning-plate people still throw parties full of strangers..."

"Well, SAD, SMALL, sweet, so delicate
It used to be this dying breed
Well I've got a bad feeling about this

I've got a bad feeling about this

...Well sad, small, sure and porcelain

You're skin and bones, I'm a nervous wreck
Well I've got a bad feeling about this (when it comes to this)
I've got a bad feeling about this"...

  1. I like your bo-ho chic outfit. The tie-die (?) print is fabulous. Haven't seen tie-die print for a long time. And those boots are really chic too

  14. That top is just beautiful and I love the plane graffiti! P.S. I knew the white pants would make you smug- I posted them with you in mind :) Guess it just goes to show that you shouldn't judge a trend until you've tried it yourself!
