FASHION & POETRY: I Know WHy A Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou Starring RicoRacer Flux

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux

PHOTOGRAPHER: Sophy Violet.

She is an amazing photographer as well as a designer. Watch Out cuz she is going to be HUGE. Check Out her FLICKR: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sophy_violet/

FASHION: I recently modeled this outfit for PASSION Agency’s Cabaret Colore Show and I just couldn’t wait to blog it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit as well as the designer…Honey Bender. She is lovely and so friendly, not to mention super talented.The outfit is called FASTER PUSSYCAT Velvet Elvis. This tangerine colored jacket is finely detailed with zippers and pockets. The form and  style adds a very masculine touch in contrast to the flower petals that just flows nicely at both shoulders. This fantastic touch adds such a couture elegance that is so unique and beautiful yet still masculine. I love how it shows the chest. =) The necklace is also part of the outfit from Faster Pussycat called Velvet Elvis Dagger Necklace. Doesn’t the Faster Pussycat  Velvet Elvis Pants in yellow combined with the Badass Belt shows a bit of a rebel side? I love the texture…kinda like Punk Glam. =)

My awesome friend Talyia Tarber had given me this makeup/tattoo layer called Garded Secret Peacock feather makeup with Gold Lipstick. I knew I had to use it with this outfit. It is a perfect combination. I love the color combination of gold and green tones which really sets off the face and outfit. The hair is a combination of Uncle Web and TSM. I love combining hairstyles. lol.

Caged Bird

By Maya Angelou

A free bird leaps on the back of the wind
and floats downstream till the current ends
and dips his wing in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.
But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage
can seldom see through his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.
The caged bird sings with a fearful trill
of things unknown but longed for still
and his tune is heard on the distant hill
for the caged bird sings of freedom.
The free bird thinks of another breeze
and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn bright lawn
and he names the sky his own.
But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.
The caged bird sings with a fearful trill
of things unknown but longed for still.
and his tune is heard on the distant hill
for the caged bird sings of freedom.
