Gustav Klimt – Adele Bloch-Bauer

…That sad past that I blindly walked

Through the dark beaches of the world

Inhumanely agitates itself

Threatening to disturb the fertile dawn of the moment…

– Julia DeBurgos

In Total Nudity

One day I will go to dance with you
To a far away place, where no laws exist, nor reasons govern
Where the water is breeze, where the bird is flower
Where everything pure and natural is confused with the grace of God
In a place clean of convention
Sterile to the mundane embrace that threatens your luck
Fertile to everything spontaneous, to the rain, to love
There, in total nudity
Rid of the elegant trappings of fine formalism
Used by human lackeys to pompously cover the scars of last nights orgies
We shall dance the dance of life
To the rhythm of a fire of light, that will burst from the sun
– Julia DeBurgos
