"Butterfly Babe" (蝴蝶宝贝)
"Butterfly Babe" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
We appear at night when the dreams come true, you can paint us pink, blue or yellow. The metamorphosis isn’t complete until you see us shine. And then we go, and you will never see us again, yet we’ve always been and will always be around. Call us whatever you want, rangers, strangers, ghosts. We know all about you. You’ve lived all your life with your eyes closed, but we can’t tell you what to do next. But don’t wake up, don’t make it kitsch. We draw something on your wall with light, the ever greater distance we travel just for a day. We live for a day, girl, while you stay in bed, it’s time for you to dream for us now. Draw for us, dance for us once, and we will sit and watch, listen to you sing. We are not your soul and we don’t feed on it. But be the flower we fly around. Come play with us Butterfly Babe.
