Postcolonoscopy Transnotionalism


  • Don't take this elegance as anything less than a disaster
    Oh my adorers, don't take me as made out of hard soil

    It takes a little silk, it takes a little glass
    Diamonds and pearls come together, it takes a little gold
    Such a fair body is then made

    Oh, applying the ailment of love to the heart,
    Wounds need to be made
    With a bleeding heart the flowers of desire have to blossom

    Thousands of pains arise, so many thorns pierce
    A flower garden is then made
    It takes a little silk, it takes a little glass
    Diamonds and pearls come together, it takes a little gold
    Such a fair body is then made

    Laughing, you haven't even had two words, you've already become a lover
    First ask their price, then take my arms
    Heart, money, the world, when one loses all three in love
    He then becomes my lover

    It takes a little silk, it takes a little glass
    Diamonds and pearls come together, it takes a little gold
    Such a fair body is then made
    It takes a little silk, it takes a little glass
