Man Ray, The Black Tray, 1914. The Phillips Collection.
Awww, LITTLE DORRIT! Nice to remember Claire Foy before she went all Nazi-sympathizer on our asses (in Upstairs, Downstairs, not IRL)
Replying to ChÅn, Serving in the 4th Grade of Government
You went to the castle markets, and I to the sea-blue mountain—
no matter how briefly we met, there was no disharmony.
The earthly life of temples and cities has both black nights and bright days—
since you think like me, no one should blame you for having my old monk’s face.
Poetry of Hyesim
