The Young Maidens // Felice Casorati // 1912 – 1912

Identity breakthrough
after all I’ve been through
Finding a truth so true
I am the floral fabric of eternity
And what does that even mean?
It’s not about being me, but being “we”

As a human girl who wakes up
and throws on all black
because colors mean too much
not because of grief anymore
Life is full of color

Somewhere between the need
to be expressive and seen
and the great surrender and release
of Ego, of self, of me
Some point on the endless spectrum
of all there is and will be

Circe Invidiosa // John William Waterhouse // 1892
