Venus Anadyomene
by Arthur Rimbaud

As from a green zinc coffin, a woman’s
Head with brown hair heavily pomaded
Emerges slowly and stupidly from an old bathtub,
With bald patches rather badly hidden;

Then the fat gray neck, broad shoulder-blades
Sticking out; a short back which curves in and bulges;
Then the roundness of the buttocks seems to take off;
The fat under the skin appears in slabs:

The spine is a bit red; and the whole thing has a smell
Strangely horrible; you notice especially
Odd details you’d have to see with a magnifying glass…

The buttocks bear two engraved words: CLARA VENUS;
—And that whole body moves and extends its broad rump
Hideously beautiful with an ulcer on the anus.

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and
screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
tell someone!

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more
than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
Nevertheless think of if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog
could definitely be one of the greatest in its niche.
Excellent blog!

First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had
a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious
to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just
trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions
or tips? Thanks!
