Self-portrait in the Hotel Nacional de Cuba

This is a self-portrait I took nearly two years ago in the Hotel Nacional de Cuba. There were things I really liked about it, well I liked everything about it except my face.

Calming the Mind Cramps

“I want you to understand exactly what you are getting: you are getting a woman who for sometime now has felt radically separated from most of the ideas that seem to interest other people. You are getting a woman who somewhere along the line missed placed whatever slight faith she ever had in social contract, in the meliorative principle, in the whole grand pattern of human endeavor…” In the Islands, Joan Didion

Windowed

The Wave

This stormy afternoon Every story in stare Pulling my hair for Pages torn too soon A curtain of words Remain everywhere   Pages and strands Pages and strands   The night is absent Flickering cigarettes And green fairy absinthe Leaving your breath For my burdened body Made to never forget   Vertical hands Vertical hands   Washing the day’s start Already…so far away Nature meant change For you, the fourth tide For me, taken in it’s wave The just in case… […]

Flip Side

Flip Side You weren’t supposed to find this place were you? You weren’t supposed to see inside you. Go back, go back under the covers! But you won’t, will you? No…no, you’ll stay up and burn up the rules, like the wind carries fire from tree to tree. You weren’t supposed to feel so much, were you? No, don’t touch anything, or let your heart and soul grow. But you did and now… you’re inside the storms that move winter […]
