monatic nomadic nymphoids

so maybe my feet will come back. maybe i can work in marketing for this language school and then create a mental space for my writing. I think other writers work business jobs and still are prolific with their poetry and art. started copying some of the language from a marketing report for the middle east. might be able to use some of that for a new poetry project. need a new direction for my project. don't want my book manuscripts to repeat themselves in their intentions, styles, content etc.

turkish neighborhood

It is pouring rain in London right now. Typical English weather i guess. I live in a Turkish neighborhood. I got my haircut the other day at a Turkish barber shop. No one spoke much English. It was interesting. He got a burning hot metal stick and put it close to my face. Supposed to be good for your skin I guess. Then he rubbed some pink liquid on my face.
