Upbeat Cynicism

Quote of the day — Nifty ’90s Week

leave a comment »

Then she appeared
Apple Venus on a half open shell
Then she appeared
The first photograph on Fox Talbots gel
I was a little frightened
Flying with my senses heightened
Cherubim cheered
Then she appeared

Then she appeared
As the giggling crew of Marie Celeste
Then she appeared
Pale Atlantis rising out of the west
I was a little dazzled
Catherine wheeled and senses frazzled
Know it sounds weird
Then she appeared

And the sun which formally shone
In the clearest summer sky
Suddenly just changed address
Now shines from her blue eyes

Then she appeared
Brittle shooting star that dropped in my lap
Then she appeared
Dressed in tricolour and phrygian cap
I was a little troubled
Hookah with my senses bubbled
All Edward leared
Then she appeared

And the moon which formally shone
On the marbled midnight mile
Suddenly just packed its bags
Now shines from her bright smile

Then she appeared
Out of nowhere

— XTC, “Then She Appeared”

(Pssst, Ro — this one’s for you!)
