He said, “She has a lovely face;
God in his mercy lend her grace,

The Lady of Shalott (1842 Version)
Alfred Lord Tennyson

I’m listening to Gridlock - Sever on repeat. One day I’ll run into someone else who knows them. I know there are others who like them and miss them.

I’m mad at art today. Need noise.
