not much body but
Very much words
Whose breath is unlettered
Though you could win a poetry slam
With the way you beat those drums
But you are wholly whole
And half holy, I have a hand and a half
And I’m drowned in honey
I didn’t listen to music
It taunted me
Can’t can’t can’t
I’d lose a battle with a broken record
I tried to kill you
Shut my ears in an attempt to suffocate
Not in syllables but I understood
You earthquaked into my bloodstream
And found the body I had buried-
Hands, arms, slab of slamming heart
And it is okay
I can listen to your language
And never once speak
It is the same
It’s not the body we’re trying to translate
We are ourselves.
We art ourselves.
An admirable multimedia.
The amazing and talented @kauriart deigned to apply her artistry to create this mesmerising picture of Isheris, an OC that I haven’t introduced before, but means a lot to me. Thank you, She looks amazing!
I feel that it is my duty to vouch for the apprentice, Isehris, and to provide you with vital and mitigating context on her case.
I have known Isehris almost since she came to us and have taken a personal interest in her tutelage. It is often overlooked that the child was older than most when her training began. Indeed, she was almost entirely unlettered, having only had whatever unsavoury learning the streets of the elven alienage might offer. It is hard enough to school our elven apprentices out of the ways they learn among their people, but this girl did not even have the blessings of an elven family. Is it any wonder then, that her instruction here has been retarded by the need to instill discipline on a half-wild street urchin?
I would attest that her attainment thus far is testament to her talent rather than her inability to learn. For she has learned, often enough in order to spite me more than anything else.
Prayer is a symbol of equality, for the poor and the rich, the low and the high, the rulers and the ruled, the educated and the unlettered, the black and the white, all stand in one row and prostrate before One Lord.
Here’s an unlettered SNEAK PEEK at the Jughead story I’m doing with Derek Charm! It features BURGERS and FRIENDSHIP and also… WITCHES??
Those variant covers you see up at the top are by none other than Veronica Fish and Audrey Mok! THEY’RE SO GOOD.
JUGHEAD #9 is on sale SEPTEMBER 7TH!! It follows the continuity America’s Uncle Chip Zdarsky set up on the book, so old readers can continue on as if NOTHING CHANGED (please do) while it’s also a great jumping on place for new readers (i.e.: YOU, potentially??)
