  • it's a wall, an american lady and a sentence
    she's been writing it on the wall over and over
    curling up letters to form thin layers of shadows until the faces emerge from the white background
    those eyes, those entangled lines, mesmerizing images, every time I go to that place
    she patiently comes in the evening, a light on the side, earplugs, details to follow

    this happens in Accra, Ghana Alliance Francaise
