Woodsmoke, scented tobacco and long Sunday cuddles. Special birthdays, the first day of winter, a snow flake in the air. One minute of silence, project fireworks on bonfires. Dead flowers and the number 13. It's mushroom season. A hypnotic apparition plumes in the air… the track of a tear, small ear. You + me or nothing. Destroy the heart, self destruct. Watch me. Caravelle or Spanish galleon? An unfinished peacock feather floats above a furry paw. Look down, look lower.

Inspired by: Portrait of Man with Blue Sleeve by Titian, the pipe smoking videos of John Sullivan, and the other Chelsea Hotel.
