The sound of trains is the sound of sepia now -- the city turned monochrome. At least a handful I know claim it as their birthright. You can see the last peak highlight of a streak of young hair across its tracks as it stitched itself to the sun. It has reclaimed the light in an old flame's eyes. Maybe we fell in love because we stood before each other as far away, we saw places in each other, and everything open has since sealed itself matte as flowers in wall-paper, stowed away in self-preservation - a garden as prescient as petals pressed between laminates. There is a landscape made in the color-schemes of us cordoned off and arranged just so, and I think a sound might do the same when it can no longer take anywhere, how it teams with pictures, as if they go together, like garden and

Celebrating Black History Month 2023
Black History Month has been an important and integral part of United States history for nearly 100 years and has since become relevant in other countries around the world as well. Observed in February in the US, Black History Month honors the contributions and achievements of African Americans throughout history, and it's an opportunity to reflect on the triumphs and struggles of the African American community. For Black History Month this year, DeviantArt is highlighting art and cultural events and exhibits hosted by museums and cultural centers that feature the work of African American artists and creators. Some of these events and exhibits can be experienced virtually, so deviants can participate regardless of where they live.

KEIN GEDICHT by Wyzzel, literature
Jedes Buch, das verschlossen bleibt, ist nichts als totes Holz. Jede Geschichte, die nicht erzählt wird, ist wie ein gestorbener Traum. Jede Seite, die leer bleibt, ist wie ein vergessener Wunsch. Jeder Satz, der nicht geschrieben wird, ist wie ein verlorener Gedanke. Jedes Wort, das nicht gelesen wird, ist wie eine vergangene Chance. Jeder Block, der ungenutzt bleibt, ist nichts als verschwendetes Papier. Jedes Bild, des nicht verwirklicht wird, ist wie eine Lüge. Jede Leinwand, die nichts zu sagen hat, ist wie ein Missverständnis. Jeder Strich, der nicht gezogen wird, ist wie ein vorwurfsvoller Blick. Jede Farbe, die nicht gewählt wird, ist wie ein geheucheltes Gefühl. Wähle alle Farben und belebe was tot ist! Nichts wird erschaffen, um vergessen zu werden! Nichts wird vergessen, solange du es lebst! (H.M.W. Oktober 2019)
