As soon as the 20th century ticked its last tocks, the world was on a rampage in search of any and everything outside the norm. Reinvention was on the rise. How to dress differently, how to style your hair differently, how to look, feel, act in such a way so far from "normal" (or the societal acceptance of norm) and label it DIFFERENT. But if you think about it, different IS effortless. You don't purchase it at the nearest vintage shop. You don't double check it with your best friend for approval. You don't combine it with the 5 latest trends and imagine you've embodied different.
You just show up.
Always on the phone
And then we decided to have a nude shoot...
This guy (below, not Doon lol) had numbers written on his arm, so, I asked what it meant. He said "Oh that's the MTA bus number that almost hit me last week... I'm taking it to my lawyer, I'm about to get PAID!" Then I realized he was a few tools short of a tool shed... but he looks like he could have played the Joker with that mouth...
Doon bought a single earring for me from this woman... She's been locking her hair for 3 years
He said he bought the little hat at Old Navy
She was just CHILLing OUT
He rode down the street and did an abrupt Uturn, maybe he left the stove on
She wears her heart on her back...
His, on his leg
Found a Gorilla rocking out,
A kid moving bricks,
And an artist at work.
Lovers and Friends (the sign said so)
Found a female who just wasn't sure
And a male whom I'm sure isn't sure...
Exiting this extraordinary place, he flirted and winked...
And I bid my farewell to Williamsburg
I believe if you're working hard to be different, you're already like everyone else. EYEListen.
