    crash
    landed,
    ablaze.
    love
    fooled
    me
    again
    but
    no great
    depression
    boils within me.

    i am
    phoenix
    bird ash.
    a pile left
    unkempt,
    awaiting
    the winds,
    god breath,
    my identity.

  12. "The word “art” is something the West has never understood. Art is supposed to be a part of a community. Like, scholars are supposed to be a part of a community… Art is to decorate people’s houses, their skin, their clothes, to make them expand their minds, and it’s supposed to be right in the community, where they can have it when they want it… It’s supposed to be as essential as a grocery store… that’s the only way art can function naturally."
