And that's how the story goes, the story of the beast with
those four dirty paws.
"I want to eat your sparrow, come
here. I want to lick your sparrow claws come
here. I want to cut your sorrows out
you’re hollowed out. Come here.
I want to suck your fingers off.
I want to give you your history back.
Your fingers back. I want to tell you yes.
Come back. I want to show you my pressure,
my heavy, my opened and clothes, my under
and o’s. Come here. I want to finger
your bones back. I want to sew your bones back
I want to re-blood your history.
I want to undo you like a mystery
novel. Is this the kitchen? The table-saw?
Is this your memory? Your tree-dream? You’re declawed.
I want to give you your teeth back. Your teeth marks.
I want to spit back your teeth-pull. I want to unhinge your heart-jaws.
Come here. I want to sit you down on the bed and give you back
my years. Here. I breathed your name into the leaves.
Here. I breathed you back into the trees. Here. This is your tree-dream
this is your tree-house, this is a bedroom, this is a silver broom
this is a shallow dream. This is my tree-dirt, my bee shirt.
This is my honey-stalk and these are your climbing shoes.
Harmonica me to sleep again. Put your sparrow on my back skin."
Jimmy once met a tiger.
It came to him and spoke to him and Jimmy was surprised to find that tigers could talk. He thought tigers would growl (or roar, or yowl) but this tiger sounded like TV static.
The tiger asked questions. Jimmy gained a tiger friend.
And then one day the tiger asked an important question, to which Jimmy’s answer was a definite, “Yes.”
A human wore a tiger skin. The tiger wore a human suit. Seamless, Jimmy couldn’t tell where the tiger ended and he began, even when he squinted real hard.
Unsure of whether he met a tiger or simply himself, Jimmy blinked his big cat eyes.
I said, “You saved my life.” And he said, “I guess it’s mine then.”

OMG THIS IS DELIGHTFUL, MY HEART OVERFLOWS WITH JOY *____*
#anyone else seeing beauty and the beast set in india? #maybe magical realism during the time when India was under British rule #maybe even on the cusp of the first war of indian independence #oh oh and her father is a sepoy in the Bengal Army and rather than losing his fortune #he loses caste due to ritual pollution by travelling on a cramped freighter #so he goes off to help with the war of independence #and Beauty goes off to pray to Durga because Durga is fierce enough to protect her father in battle #but she stumbles upon Dawon #(Durga’s lion-tiger mount in Hindu mythology) #and Dawon bargains with her—if Beuaty can spend a year and a day in Dawon’s service; her father will return safely home and their caste … #will be restored #and Beauty loves her family and her father so she accepts #(spoiler alert; they fall in love) (via notbecauseofvictories)
Dare I say I miss him? I do. I miss him. I still see him in my dreams. They are nightmares mostly, but nightmares tinged with love. Such is the strangeness of the human heart.
hellotrickster said: Clairestiel or Tigerstiel?
Clairestiel, if only because I haven’t completely worked out how Tigerstiel works. Like how does he communicate with Dean? Tigerstiel is really interesting to me in broad strokes, but when we get down to the nitty-gritty details of a ‘verse, Clairestiel is easier for me to work with.
Not for nothing, Cas, but the last time someone looked at me like that — I got laid.
