The Applicant

Sep 10, 2013

 First, are you our sort of a person?

Do you wear
A glass eye, false teeth or a crutch,
A brace or a hook,
Rubber breasts or a rubber crotch,
Stitches to show something's missing? 

No, no? Then
How can we give you a thing?
Stop crying.
Open your hand.
Empty? Empty. Here is a hand

To fill it and willing
To bring teacups and roll away headaches
And do whatever you tell it.
Will you marry it?
It is guaranteed

To thumb shut your eyes at the end
And dissolve of sorrow.
We make new stock from the salt.
I notice you are stark naked.
How about this suit -

Black and stiff, but not a bad fit.
Will you marry it?
It is waterproof, shatterproof, proof
Against fire and bombs through the roof.
Believe me, they'll bury you in it.

Now your head, excuse me, is empty.
I have the ticket for that.
Come here, sweetie, out of the closet.
Well, what do you think of that?
Naked as paper to start

But in twenty-five years she'll be silver,
In fifty, gold.
A living doll, everywhere you look.
It can sew, it can cook,
It can talk, talk, talk.

It works, there is nothing wrong with it.

You have a hole, it's a poultice.
You have an eye, it's an image.
My boy, it's your last resort.
Will you marry it, marry it, marry it.

Like my dress and necklace from this post? :) I originally wanted to write my own poem for this shoot but unfortunately I wasn't able to come up with a decent one that goes with the concept and I didn't want to force it so I decided to use one of my favorite poems by Sylvia Plath instead. Usually the poem comes first and then the concept but in this case I had to work around this dress/look.

Are you into Korean fashion? , Gyaru or Asian Fashion in general?  If you're on the hunt for stylish and affordable clothes and wholesale fashion items and wholesale accessories then look no further! 

Cleocat Fashion sells a wide variety of stylish clothes and accessories at wholesale prices with no minimum purchase quantity! How awesome is that? :) 

Here are the gorgeous accessories that I got from them:

Video of me "attempting" to rap after the shoot :))) hahaha! Gangster's Paradise by Coolio was one of the first rap songs that I memorized when I was a little kid. I still know the lyrics by heart up to now. 

Playlist :)

Stay pretty! xx

I'd love to hear from you guys!
