Royal Quiet Deluxe


In class, we’ve been talking about how language is used to express our individual experience of the world; I often follow blogs too close to my own experience.

Coming across Royal Quiet Deluxe was like making a new friend, the kind that only shares one or two interests, but is always pulling you over to point out something beautiful in a shop you’d never noticed, or reading out loud from a book you’d have never picked up yourself, so that the world is suddenly larger, with a faint edge of excitement.

The only rule is work
What writers wear
And there’s no cure for that
Ham and eggs fire
Good morning midnight
