Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

La Petite Mort



Love Bugs
Interlocked for eternity
From ecstasy to hood

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  2. Oh rain won’t wash them off. Their guts are like glue (well maybe it’s their guts) and it takes the paint off cars.


  3. More of a petit grand mort, then?
