Pregúntale a Alicia


Hay rumores de pasos en el equilibrio de la idea.

Animales extinguidos responden a la pregunta que limita al norte

con el viento del oeste, y al este,

con la sombra de un perro vagabundo por las leyes naturales...

Escucha, la saliva sana,

si es otra y la tuya en la piel que libra

de todas las miserias.

Aunque entierren la llave,

una canción abrirá siempre

el espejo de Alicia.


La Susi.

⚫ Artist: #Softtwix / #YumiRiusaki in City: Citadelle #Doullens France 🇫🇷 - Title: "Albertine Sarrazin" - ( for the Exibition: "Transgression, Quand l'art entre au mitard") - #Streetart #Art #Mastoart #Mural
#AlbertineSarrazin #Literature
Streetartwall. Black and white photograph of a portrait mural of Albertina Sarrazin in a former women's prison. In a dark, narrow, brick corridor, the mural of a white woman's face is painted at the end of the hallway. The wall with three steps on the floor, is designed entirely in black. The face is finely drawn and is interrupted by some dark wall marks. They look like small scars. The face shines in this darkness and exerts a pull on the viewer.
Info: Albertine Sarrazin (1936-1967) was a French writer from Algiers. She was adopted as a baby by a French couple, raped by a stranger when she was 10, and then sent to a reformatory by her adoptive parents. She spent most of her life in reformatories and behind prison walls. She used the day she graduated from high school to escape to Paris. She made a living as a prostitute and by stealing, with her lover from the asylum, she committed an armed robbery and was sentenced to 7 years in prison. At 19, she escaped, jumped over the prison wall and met Julien Sarrazin, another escaped inmate, whom she later married. They spent most of the eight years of their marriage apart in prison, repeatedly arrested for theft and receiving stolen goods. In prison, Albertine began to write down her memories and her everyday life in prison. and became a celebrated novelist....

Comic strip. 4 pics:
First Pic:
A man sits in an green armchair, a orange burning lamp behind him and a bookcase in the background. He is reading a book. Speech bubble:
"I've read so much."
Pic 2: He looks up and says:
"But lived so little."
Pic 3: He stands at a window and reaches for the purple curtains.
"I bet a world of wonders awaits me outside!"
Pic 4: We are now looking through the window. Flames, ufos, lightning, an atomic bomb blast, and people screaming. He looks at us and says nothing.
Info: War and Peas is the webcomic duo Elizabeth Pich & Jonathan Kunz. They release a new comic every Sunday.

More info:


‘kiss me & you will see how important i am.’

sylvia plath (born #otd in 1932) was the first one to teach me that it’s quite okay not to be okay - & i’m not alone under her pedagogy.
since my first prepubescent brush with ‘the bell jar’, i’ve lived by its imparted wisdom - most especially: ‘if you expect nothing from somebody, you are never disappointed' - a credo for life that's much more optimistic than it first appears to be.
