Pretty, Vacant

Am I not pretty enough
Is my heart to broken
Do I cry too much
Am I too outspoken
Don't I make you laugh
Should I try it harder
Why do you see right through me?

- Kasey Chambers
'Not Pretty Enough'

All of her lovers
All talk of her notes
And the flowers
That they never sent
And wasn't she easy
And isn't she
Pretty in pink?
The one who insists
He was first in the line
Is the last to
Remember her name
He's walking around
In this dress
That she wore
She is gone
But the joke's the same

- Psychedelic Furs
'Pretty In Pink'

I am not pretty. My shows are not pretty. My art is not pretty. My prose is not pretty. My jokes are not pretty. My life is not pretty. My scars are not pretty.

Time for a new aesthetic.
