a heavenly photograph and fashion garment and a description of heaven to accompany it:

big city.  overgrown with weeds, but flowering weeds.  on every corner a wrecking crew and something new and crooked going up catty corner to that.  windows missing  in every edifice like broken teeth, gritty wind, and a gray high sky full of ravens.  prophet birds.  piles of trash, but lapidary like rubies and obsidian, and diamond-colored cowspit streamers in the wind.  and voting booths.  and everyone in balenciaga gowns with red corsages, and big dance palaces full of music and lights and racial impurity and gender confusion.   and all the deities are creole, mulatto, brown as the mouths of rivers.  race, taste, and history finally overcome.  - tony kushman
