the process is the artwork

An angel’s face is tricky to wear constantly

Tori Amos, Purple People:

So hey do you do judo when they surround you
A little mental yoga will they disappear
It’s grim but never dubious as motives go
One thing she always promises a show

Thunder wishes it could be the snow
Wishes it could be as loved as she can be
These gifts are here, for her, for you, for me

I watch me be this other thing and never know
If I’m marooned or where the purple people go
Then lily white matricide from vicious words
It doesn’t leave a scratch so therefore no one’s hurt

Thunder wishes it could be the snow
Wishes it could be as loved as she can be
These gifts are here, for her, for you, for me

And on and on
The nurses make it clear
Just when you escape, you have yourself to fear
A restaurant that never has to close
Breakfast at every hour, it could save the world

So hey do you do judo in your finery
An angel’s face is tricky to wear constantly

Thunder wishes it could be the snow
Wishes it could be as loved as she can be
These gifts are here, for her, for you, for me
