Santa Fe U28CGs Train #15, the TEXAS CHIEF, makes a smoky departure from Coal City, Illinois, July 17, 1968. GE U28CG 354 leads the Texas-bound train.

Friday the Thirteenth

i am firmly planted into your midsummer candescence, your foxtrotting prowess; & we
watch as the flowerbeds we called home
for 6 months wilted like kisses from December,
i’m dreaming of hazy starlight, black sand
beaches and your swimming pool eyes,
those color-shifting angels: sometimes green,
sometimes blue, sometimes grey, and you
stuck your heart out with your tongue like a
burning arrow, like a dart board;
the stormy sail of your floundering misery; caught you shuffling your mother’s old tarot cards in your backyard on friday the 13th, and i could tell with my eyes closed & my fingers laced behind my back that you would always pick Death; there was something about that illegally lit evening, you telling me of how your mother spikes her own tea with doses of viagra, how you hear your baby sister’s laugh in windchimes and the way the streetlights make you feel; highway god zipping beneath the underpass with the troll kids & the vagabonds all cranked up on smoky city fever dreams.

Rebecca Sugar Exclusive Comic Cover Issue #1

OMG just came in the mail today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

for those who are not familar with Steven universe comic, the two images in the center are the on both inside the Front and Back covers of every Steven Universe comic to date.

 i speculate the inner Back cover is the fusion of Rose Quartz, Garnet, Amethyst & Pearl. and if its not obvious this looks like the statue/sculpture on the cliff where the Crystal Gems live.

many people ask about there being five gems especially on the door in the gems home. this is because Garnet uses two gems, a Red and Blue gem. in the doors ‘star’ crest. 

tho i guess we will have to wait and see for the real answers <3
