the immortals

Black robed, his cry in the wilderness –
The religion of it, it’s a killing room, filled with the lovers long forgotten, their spent flesh a repast for our feast, _ we honour them in our atonement, this, our wars of the roses.

From the middle distance, we moved towards His Light.

    1. book titles, like musical band names, or song titles, but especially book titles, can make for interesting fodder – combined in all kinds of interesting – they just are such a great stepping off point 🙂

      1. I’d have to research all those names, since I don’t wear cosmetics, (haven’t for over 25 years) – but you might want to try Burt’s Bees – it’s a great product. 🙂

      2. Burts Bees is too. In fact, B.B. was a small, home-grown for many years, before they had to expand, by selling to a big corp. That stirred alot of bonnets, but they have held true to their principles. You’d think it’d be easier to find natural products, eh?

      3. I’m sure you’ll be able to find something suitable. And just so you know, Burt’s is most easily found, – you probably should be able to find it, even at a Walmart or some such. And it’s not unreasonably priced, at all, for a natural product.
