unriddle

✧               ✧ ✧         A ballerinas dance:         ✧          ✧               ✧ ☄             ❛ Sneaky and mysterious are we. 

Dark and unriddled we are.

 Star to star we prance. 

We never stop our dance. 

If you asked us to tell you our secrets. 

A ballerina must never say.

 We know you will never keep it.

 After all. You are our prey. ❜                               

Scrolling through genius lyrics and found this fun fact: Angelica was the one with the misplaced comma:

“Indeed my dear, Sir if my path was strewed with as many roses, as you have filled your letter with compliments, I should not now lament my absence from America”

Hamilton responded with “You ladies despise the pedantry of punctuation. There was a most critical comma in your last letter. It is my interest that it should have been designed; but I presume it was accidental. Unriddle this if you can.” and signed the letter off with “Adieu ma chere, soeur.”

Miranda has confirmed that this is based on letters between Angelica Schuyler and Alexander Hamilton.

She wrote to him,

“Indeed my dear, Sir if my path was strewed with as many roses, as you have filled your letter with compliments, I should not now lament my absence from America”

Hamilton, noticing the key comma that made him simply her “dear,” rather than her “dear sir,” responded

“You ladies despise the pedantry of punctuation. There was a most critical comma in your last letter. It is my interest that it should have been designed; but I presume it was accidental. Unriddle this if you can.”

Hamilton signs this flirtatious letter “Adieu ma chere, soeur” or “Farewell my dear, sister"—inserting a vexing comma of his own.

Love how Jane’s gradually discovering Lisbon’s personality. And how he reveals his understanding of her as time goes by. He notices what everyone sees in her – her honesty, kindness and loyalty – and is inevitably attracted to them as something that keeps him afloat, that breathes hope into him, it’s like all these qualities in him reciprocate her goodness and he believes more in himself.

And he also reveals that he’s attracted to her in another way too, that she stirs his heart’s desires and is the person whose opinion matters to him, who is capable of moving him to the state where he feels alive again and also whose absence in his life is capable of throwing him back into the black abyss she dragged him from. And it’s obvious he loves discovering the way she is, what she likes her tastes; he senses her deeply.

There’s no contradiction for him in her being an open book for him and a mystery he’s yet to unriddle. I think he’s mesmerized by the things he doesn’t know about her, and he takes time to discover them for himself. It must be a source of incessant excitement for him, I bet he enjoys being on edge because of her, being more an average human in love and less a mentalist.

too scared to unriddle / the jigsaw of his boyhood / too scared of detonating / marbles as bombs / of his wrists handcuffing my ankles / stirrups of scar & bone / a boy who wants to be pegged / who wants to be mummified / in broderie anglaise / rooms of coffin-shaped doorways / rooms of sandalwood snakes / rooms drowning / in thigh deep rubbing alcohol / fingers noosed against his jugular / soap bubble clouds popping / behind the tinsel of rain / flutter and throttle / his neck of wineglass stem / his song of a breaking bottle / too scared of shards / that will shred / my tongue down to ribbons of silk /  too scared / of the poison ivy / that bloomed / in his mother’s milk
