1. "

    I felt a funeral in my brain,
    And mourners, to and fro,
    Kept treading, treading, till it seemed
    That sense was breaking through.
    And when they all were seated,
    A service like a drum
    Kept beating, beating, till I thought
    My mind was going numb.

    And then I heard them lift a box,
    And creak across my soul
    With those same boots of lead,
    Then space began to toll

    As all the heavens were a bell,
    And Being but an ear,
    And I and silence some strange race,
    Wrecked, solitary, here.

    And then a plank in reason, broke,
    And I dropped down and down—
    And hit a world at every plunge,
    And finished knowing—then—

  7. I’m reading Siege & Storm while listening to the Carmilla theme song on repeat and I just have so many feeeeeels. 

     

  8. My Masquerade Phantasmagoria playlist begins with classical, slides into cheesy Halloween dance music, spends some time with the Smiths and Queens of the Stone Age, dips into Halloween classics and jazzy spooky numbers, mellows out with Donovan, Blue Oyster Cult, and Jill Tracy, then ends with more classical music. Almost six hours of music in all. I’m pretty psyched for our Halloween party. 

     

  9. I’m reading Leigh Bardugo’s Shadow and Bone right now, and it is great. 

    But I’m kinda sickly at the moment, and I keep misreading “the Darkling” as “Darkwing.”

    As in “Darkwing Duck.”

    I’ve been giggling a lot more than I probably should.

  14. This tiny winter soldier was smiling and laughing and asking my friend questions about art she’d bought, but the moment I asked her and her dad if I could get a picture she immediately snapped into this pose. BEST CHILD EVER.
