pieceworks

When it turned night in the forest, and your breathing 
And your heartbeat were all my hymn and anthem;
When you raised my hand to comb your stubbly gold hair
And laughed, “bottle brush!”, at your former glory,
And your piecework pride, so I could smile too; when you,
Later, held me, sobbing into your sweater,
For hours, and lilted old Lithuanian songs,
Then was our trust and understanding beyond words. 
I remember this, and other more distant whens:
When amidst the sheared stalks we pledged never to break faith—
And even though we did, your prodigal love is
Indulgent and necessary to me as music. 
I unclasp my hand from the handle of my suitcase.
Your heart’s my home, harbour, fortress, fields of promise.

prodigal: referencing the parable of the son who ungratefully left his family and later returned, or, literally: having or giving something on a lavish scale

strangeparticles replied to your photo “Even his simple grey suits are crazy! (fifty million bonus points if…”

How is the suit crazy? I don’t understand. What is going on there?

The piecework and pattern matching on the lapel is pretty amazing.  Just for contrast here’s a basic (albeit kinda ugly) pin-striped lapel with arrows to show the direction of the pattern.

And here’s David’s suit.

It’s a subtle touch but it just goes to show that even his basic suits… aren’t.

So i’m gonna sell my

I think that’s it for now. Send me and ask or message if you might be interested. I own a lot of collector stuff.

My collection thus far. I’m really excited about the piecework cards, and am slowly working my way to completing those insert collections. The Lilly Kane [prom dress], Veronica Mars [pilot shirt], and Logan Echolls [pilot shirt] are not on eBay currently. I have to hunt these down. And find the money to buy them. Last time I saw the Veronica SE1 Pieceworks it was going for around $80.

It was 1937, and Steve was broke. That wasn’t news, Steve was always broke, but some months were leaner than others. Especially when Steve managed to duck by Bucky and his help and skate by on his own.

He wasn’t, no matter what Buck tried to say, suicidally stupid. He did every odd job he could get hired for, even if it was just for a day. He did piecework with art, sewing and cleaning, when he could get it, but sometimes aboveboard work just wasn’t in the cards.

Steve was proud, but he wasn’t stupid. He knew a talent when he found one.
