#MOONX: final lament f/ june ann d'angelo (NSFW photos by allure)

FINAL LAMENT

The curtains were half drawn; the floor was swept
And strewn with rushes; rosemary and may
Lay thick upon the bed on which I lay,
Where, through the lattice, ivy-shadows crept.
He leaned above me, thinking that I slept
And could not hear him; but I heard him say,
"Poor child, poor child"; and as he turned away
Came a deep silence, and I knew he wept.
He did not touch the shroud, or raise the fold
That hid my face, or take my hand in his,
Or ruffle the smooth pillows for my head.
He did not love me living; but once dead
He pitied me; and very sweet it is
To know he still is warm though I am cold.
- After Death by Christina Rossetti (1862)

recently, justin culton had his first art show at The Nest of Cryptic Winged Photography and sold out both his Friday and Saturday shows. selling over 10 pieces, he will be able to replace his camera that was recently stolen. the midwest is lucky to have this creative photographer that loves popping color and enhancing natural reflective surfaces and has truly created his own style.
