"Blue Unattainable"

Quite a few comments on my last post asked me to share some of my poetry here on Jupe, and I am happy to oblige (although also somewhat terrified!)...I popped a poem in at the bottom of this post if you'd like to read it!

On your way to the bottom of the post, however, don't forget to admire these totally rad pants that cost $1.49 and feel like snuggling in pajamas 24/7.  Yes, they are official 80s vintage.   Yes, I love them and want to wear them every day.  Yes, they are total grandma pants.  But I've been convincing myself they don't look too terrible--after all, they inspired pants styles that are really trendy now--I'm just rocking the originals.








Falling Outwards


You looking at me with adoration
is thin to burst by bite
like an apple skin--
the beneath white flesh
my tongue runs against
is bitter, unripe,
with the peeling taint of arsenic.


Stroking a butterfly’s wing,
small, bright-coloured scales
stick to your fingertips;

which is like you touching me.


And in yours like the sky,
my eyes find
the blue unattainable.


Listen to water rushing away,
not at all the sound of water rushing inward,

and you will hear yourself speaking
happiness to me.


<3 Cambria

  3. Those pants are far from grannies! Your pants are much more fitted than some I've seen, so they totally work :) Thanks for sharing some of your poetry with us!

  7. First off, you did those pants no justice with your words! I was expecting hideous 80's pants. Nope, these fit you like a dream. Your poetry is amazing! I miss my poetry class and should probably write more of it.

  11. Your pants are totally awesome. I can't believe they were less than $2. That's less than the amount I spent on my coffee this morning. My coffee is now gone, but you still have these cool pants. Such a win!

    You are also a beautiful writer. :)

  13. you're a talented lady for sure! and I honestly think there's nothing wrong with the pants. especially because you've added that trendy belt. yeah, those pants totally suit you and I don't think they're granny pants, haha.

  20. Your poetry is beautiful, it gave me such a calm and lovely feeling when I read it (i don't know, it's kind of hard to explain :/) But anyways, I really liked it!

    Your pants are definitely rad, is it a sprinkle print? It is adorable, I love how you kept it simple with a white tee :)

  29. You look great, I cannot believe what a bargain those trousers were! That was such a lovely poem too xxx

  30. You are so sweet, but I can't imagine why you'd wish for my figure when yours is already so darling! You're tiny! Gosh, I love those pants on you! They do look 80s, but you styled them so that you look very chic and modern, not like you should be carrying around a foot-long cell phone on your way to get a perm.

    That poem. Oh my goodness. It's breathtaking, it really is. You have a talent that I long for.

    May the force be with you.
