jolie laide

jolie laide

I started this when I lived in Brooklyn and struggled for grace in a city that grants moments of beauty and ugliness breathtakingly close to one another. Now I live in a place where things are a different kind of ugly and the beauty is pedestrian. I struggle with that.


I'm sorry I was late, coming home from work. The construction lamps in the subway tunnel were just so beautiful. I stared so their blurry stars could light my eyes. Then I carried them home in my chest so I could give them to you.
