Every time I leave the buzz of the city, time shifts in a way that is pretty jarring. So much quiet - so much space - so many hours alone...it's amazing, but difficult - and it definitely sends me on a hunt - an exploration of the shadow sides of the things around me. Within me.
An old lover used to call me 'la Escalpela' - the Scalpel. The night we met, we were on a rooftop at a songwriters' venue - everyone got drunk on mezcal and, at one point, decided that we needed a word, a name, to capture each of ourselves in that moment. It was decided I was a blade. A scalpel, specifically. An extremely sharp knife - one used for the dissection of things, for surgery, for the making of art. In these moments - the weighted, feral hours just before sunrise - I still feel it to the bone.
