My blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones,
It keeps my veins hot, the fires found a home in me.
I move through town, I’m quiet like a fire,
And my necklace is of rope, I tie it and untie it.
“Decoration is really about creating a quality of life,
and a beauty in that life that nourishes the soul,
that makes life beautiful.
That’s what all this is about, not just what’s in and what’s out.
– Albert Hadley
