Ismini And The Fine Art Of Moving Forward


She is never going to tell you what you want to hear. It’s easier to let these sort of things slip into the ether, but you know neither of you will let that happen. We carry around the burden of our connection with another across all the kinds of terrain one might imagine.

This juxtaposition speaks to some sort of power struggle between the self and the forces of the world. It’s a wonderful sampling of poetic fashion and the fine art of moving forward in style.
