“I listen to their very sweet sob make my grey silence bloom” (Alejandra Pizarnik, argentinian poet)
I’ll tell you what makes my grey silence bloom and that’s Swiss absinthe or a mallet to the head, although the absinthe usually makes my grey silence bloom and then, after the 6th one, I fall asleep (whereupon my green silence blooms).
It looks as if this goth is gripping something nail-like, which makes me think that she’s listening to the tree’s very sweet sob after stabbing it in the trunk. I could be wrong. She could be twiddling a broken branch or something. Either way, I suspect she’s being cruel to trees to fuel her own grey silence habit. Tut tut. She looks high up the tree and she’s not smiling. It’s day time but she’s covered the majority of her skin well.

Also, here’s a link to an interview I did with The Black Flag, an alternative culture and music web mag. It’s all true, I assure you.
The Spastics Society submitted this photo with the comment “BOW DOWN BEFORE THE TREE-GOTHS YOU SERVE! This is a little snap of us in transmogulating in our NONONONNONONONONO Tree. (of the sea).”
Alrighty then, members of a society with a politically name that I don’t agree with, you’ve definitely baffled me with your “transmogulating”. Do you mean transmogrifying? Because I know all about that shit. If we don’t bow down before you are we still going to get what we deserve? What do we even deserve? A big plate of vampire fang lollies? New Rock boots for all? A big Combichrist danceathon? A big vat of white face paint? A bit of everything, I hope. Sounds like a party!
And this looks like a party. Two well gothed-up up-trees at night time with no smiling. A reasonable height up the tree. The supporting cast is looking fetching in a bloody wedding dress (his sneakers and jeans poking underneath let him down but we can’t have everything). Well done, people *round of applause*.
5 out of 5 - Bow down before the white face paint you serve
ALSO, Seattle radio station KEXP had a Goths In Trees day last Friday to celebrate Earth Day and Robert Smith’s birthday, which looked awesome. They did an interview with me and posted it on their blog. READ IT AND WEEP. Or just read it. It’s all true, I assure you. OK, most of it is true.
