my friend rich’s house. why are walls here always painted this color?

bahia concha. took a moto taxi to get here. no helmet. no good.

behind me is a mountain of plastic garbage. swear.

this kid always tilts his head like this as he asks some inane question. but really, he’s pleading with you to never leave. but you will anyway.

amparro’s birthday. the lady in the pink. she turned 35, one year older than me. she lives in the school with her two sons. she’d never had a party before.

good climbing tree. naughty children.

little kittens in a big chair. eventually, momma cat came and stole them back one by one while no one was looking.

colombia knows juice. this is where i sit and drink it. mango. lulo. berry. banana. guanabana.

About trying not to touch anything

living in a space where i am half packed, or half unpacked, depending on how you look at it; going somewhere else; wanting to write about my misadventures on a planet i don't feel like i should be on

    New things I do: Miss you randomly and fiercely in a way that does not get taken care of. So glad to see you living in such colors.
