HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEREMY SAFFER!! Jeremy is by far the coolest photographer I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with! Most of the interesting photographs of me out there are taken by him! Everyone who knows me knows how much I hate having my picture taken, but I actually enjoy it with Jeremy because I don’t feel like a still-life, I feel like I’m creating art! A genuinely great person, an brother in edge, a superb talent and a true friend! I really encourage all of you to check out his work! Love you, Jeremy, and can’t wait to see you soon!! 💙💀📷🎃
First you hear the words
and they are like all other words,
ordinary, breathing out of lips,
moving toward you in a straight line.
Later they shatter
and rearrange themselves. They spell
something else hidden in the muscles
of the face, something the throat wanted to say.
"Depression is such a cruel punishment. There are no fevers, no rashes, no blood tests to send people scurrying in concern. Just the slow erosion of the self, as insidious as any cancer. And, like cancer, it is essentially a solitary experience. A room in hell with only your name on the door."
