Angels



 by Ocean


ANGELS -
THEY’RE ALWAYS MALE.
ALWAYS STRONG. PROTECTIVE.
GLORIOUSLY BEAUTIFUL.
HEROIC, AND TRANSCENDANT.
PROTECTORS.GUARDIANS.

THEY’RE IN THE OTHER WORLD. THEY’RE IN THIS ONE.
THEY’RE BEAUTIFUL AND GLORIOUS.
THEY’RE STRONG.
THEY’RE SOLDIERS. MESSENGERS.

THEY’RE MORE LIKE ROBOCOP AND THE TERMINATOR THAN LIKE THE SWEET,CUDDLY VARIETY MOST OF US HOLD IN OUR MINDS.
THEY’RE TERRIFYING, MOSTLY, AND YET, THEY EXECUTE GOD’S WILL, WHETHER GOOD OR BAD.

THEY’RE INCAPABLE OF EMOTIVE CHOICE, DESPITE THE ROMANCES WE’VE FABRICATED ABOUT ANGELS.

FASCINATED, WE ARE. IN AGREEMENT, WE’RE NOT, BUT IN THE ANCIENT TEXTS, LIKE THE BIBLE, ANGELS ARE DEFINITELY NOT LIKE THE CARING FOLK, MALE AND FEMALE, OR CHERUBIC BABY ANGELS, THAT POPULAR FICTION DEPICTS.


SO WHY CAN’T WE APPRECIATE ANGELS FOR WHAT AND WHO THEY ARE?
BECAUSE WE CHOOSE TO IGNORE THE SCARY ASPECTS OF THESE FIERY BRINGERS OF GOD’S RIGHTEOUS RETRIBUTIONS o n US.

WE CHOOSE TO INSTEAD THINK OF THEM AS MADE IN OUR IMAGE – BUT IN A SWEETER WAY, CAPABLE o nLY OF GOOD DEEDS.

AND LET’S FACE IT, ANGELS ARE HOT.

REMEMBER THE DUMB BUT GORGEOUS ANGEL RAVISHED IN ‘BARBARELLA’ BY THE CHARACTER PLAYED BY ANITA PALLENBERG ?
SHE HAD FUN BRINGING HIM DOWN, LITERALLY. DESPOILING HIS VIRGINITY, CORRUPTING HIS INEXPERIENCE, MATERIALIZING HIM AND AWAKENING LUST INSTEAD OF SPIRIT.

THE MORE HOMELY BUT REAL HUSBAND-TYPE THAT NICK CAGE PLAYED IN “CITY OF ANGELS “, AND HIS FELLOW BLACK-COATED ARMY OF WELL-INTENTIONED HELPER ANGELS WERE MUCH 
MORE DRAWN BY OUR WORLD THAN WOULD BE A REAL ANGEL – ALWAYS IMPERVIOUS TO OUR OWN REALM AND JUST GRIMLY DOING THEIR JOBS.

ANYWAY, WE’LL KEEP OUR LITTLE CHERISHED NOTIONS OF CHERUBS, NAUGHTY BUT NICE, FLYING AROUND AND FIRING ARROWS OF LOVE INTO US FOR VALENTINE’S 
DAY – A DIRECT LIFT FROM ANCIENT GREEK NOTIONS OF THE LOVE GODDESS’ SON – AND WE’LL GET COMFORT FROM THINKING THAT THE HYPER-MASCULINE ANGELIC KINGDOM ALSO CONTAINS FEMALE ANGELS , THOUGH IT DOESN’T.

AND THAT THEY WATCH OVER US, AND THAT IT IS THEY WHO CATCH US WHEN WE FALL.

BUT KEEP IN MIND THAT CHA BETTER WATCH OUT! BE GOOD, AND PRESUMABLY THE ANGELIC VENGEANCE WILL NOT BE VISITED ON YOU.
