"I am so perfect so divine so ethereal so surreal
I cannot be comprehended except by my permission"
Nikki Giovanni, excerpt from “Ego Tripping (there may be a reason why)” (via fernsandmoss)
Moon marked and touched by sun
my magic is unwritten
but when the sea turns back
it will leave my shape behind.—Audre Lorde, from “A Woman Speaks”
Michael Burghers, Descent into Hell, Ancient Mysteries Described, late 17th or early 18th century
