Lana Del Rey
I bet you did not know that glasses are made from soda-lime sand, or that snakes flick their tongues to smell the air, or that the tiniest tree in the world is the Dwarf Willow measuring only two inches high.
I bet you did not know that apples and onions taste the same when you pinch your nose, or that some rocks float on water and never sink.
I bet you did not know that there is a bone in your tongue called the hyoid, or that Napoleon Bonaparte was the one who coined the term, “a picture is worth a thousand words.”
I bet you did not know that Australians eat kangaroo beef, or that oolong tea leaves begin to look like dragons when you put them in water, or that no planet is actually a perfect sphere.
I bet you did not know that Benjamin Franklin discovered the ocean current, or that he invented the first public library.
I bet you did not know that when Zelda Sayre left F. Scott Fitzgerald, he wrote her a novel in hopes of winning her back.
I bet you did not know that Otto Frank published his daughter’s diary, as it contained the last contents of her hidden existence, to slap Germany in the face with innocence.
I bet you did not know that none of Rembrandt’s sketches contain clouds even though his paintings do.
I bet you did not know that Edgar Allan Poe was a part of Alcoholics Anonymous.
I bet you did not know that all of this will be forgotten in the next era, or that none of this will ever matter in the next millennium unless somebody writes it down.
I am writing it down.
I bet nobody will ever understand the entirety of who you are.
I will write about that, too.
wow, love this
