Death and the Maiden

So, in keeping with this somewhat morbid theme of the last week or so- some thoughts on typically Germanic iconography.
-an ancient armadillo/asleep for centuries/in the cellar of the Kremlin/raises its horny head/opens its square third eye/and looks around blinking/and then at last/unglues its great gut mouth/ and utters/ecstatic static.
-from Lawrence Ferlinghetti- "Moscow in the Wilderness, Segovia in the Snow. (I will take you somewhere old.)

I bought a new hat from one of those outdoor mall kiosks- it didn't change my smile, though.
borrowed from Terunobu Fujimori

Yes I guess I appropriate (so much nicer word than steal-)
