In a soothing voice, the Duchess reads: ‘Lost and fearful, typically tearful,
‘Using your compass,
‘Now you are not alone,
‘At last, no more deserted feeling,
‘We are built-in and sated, a new orientation, embrace harmonisation.’
In one other of her digital artworks, May We Speak, Fergie asks: ‘Do you assume you are awake?’
Fergie talked about her NFTs in a ‘Twitter house’ final week, and skim a poem she wrote when the Queen died: ‘A rainbow seems over the turret so clear,
‘A sign for us all we must stand tall,
‘Whenever you see a rainbow seem, you realize I’m close to, Never concern. I might not physically be standing there however in your coronary heart I will never fear. Look inside and you will see the colours of my rainbow wrapped around, my love for you abounds.’
