Oisuga week - day 3: outer space/mistakes

Gullible baby Oikawa was easily convinced that Suga was a real alien because of his light hair and the glowing antenna headband. Suga just played along and pointed at random stars, telling Oikawa about ‘the star he was originally from’ and made-up facts about the outer space. Oikawa wished he had a telescope instead of his dad’s binocular so he could get to see the rad alien spaceship station Suga told him about. Little nerds.

Precious

Caution, you call it -
Reluctance, I counter;
You’re breathtaking in this light
dimmed by aura of satiation.
I want to memorize all the contours
of this moment, and you ponder my silence
Caution, you call it -
But no, not caution,
Reluctance, I counter.

Prized jewels aren’t left in the open
Rare works of art aren’t always in museums
Money itself is locked up
What everyone wants is meant to be elusive
Economics says as much
Demands grows; supply restricts; value exponential
And that’s all about what’s measurable…
What of this which is priceless?
Caution, you call it -
Reluctance, I counter.

It’s true I keep you to myself
your essence and your quintessence
collected quaint in my heart –
No, I do not want to release
the knowledge of your existence;
The world has a way of taking
by hook or by crook
but if they don’t even know
what immense treasure I have found
in you and yours?
Caution, you call it -
Reluctance, I counter.

I opt for silence and smear it over the windows
let no one see here what’s not meant for their eyes
what they think then is their business
this extraordinary rivet is mine.
So, with a finger to your lips,
let me wrap you up in my reluctance
to let you go, whilst caution
stands a sentinel at the threshold.

I would love to buy clothing/etc from native artisans and not from forever 21/etc but im finding it hard to find sites and such that i can order from. If I do come across one its just by chance. Mind helping me out? :/

It’s great that you want to support Native artists! While this is by no means a comprehensive list - hopefully it provides you with some alternatives rather than shopping at UrbanOutfitters and the like.

If you happen to live in a state with a Tribal College, you might want to contact the art department and inquire if they have upcoming designer showcases. Not only are you supporting Native designers, tribal colleges, and students, but tribal college designer showcases are an artworld secret full of amazing finds. Also they tend to be cheaper than established galleries, but the quality is just the same.
