I am saying goodnight

“She is certainly intense, and she is certainly talented.”
– John Rockwell, The New York Times

Every night I AM SAYING GOODNIGHT only to wake up in the morning longing for the smell of coffee and start all over again until exhausted I AM SAYING GOODNIGHT only to wake up in the morning longing for the smell of coffee.

A pre-decided game, with an intense physical vocabulary, unfiltered emotions, and an unflinching embrace of fatalism.
