Photographer's Note


How is that some people get under your skin, like scabies, and stay there until they have infected your bloodstream and you contract some sort of blood fever that makes you wander around in a daze feeling pitiable and angry all at once?
Why, for the love of god, do some people still inspire in you tender feelings even though they’ve treated you like shit? You can go six months without seeing them, and then, bam, that first meeting (re-meeting) and he is wearing the exact same outfit he was wearing the night you first kissed, and you answer his idle questions monosyllabically, even though what you really want to do is telling him everything, in rich and vivid detail, and when you’ve talked yourself hoarse you want him to do the same. You want to hear about how much coffee he has drunk since you parted, how many games of pool he has played, how many hours he has spent sleeping, alone, or with another (even though that might make you cry in public, you still have a morbid curiousity), what movies he has seen, what books he has read, with whom he has conversed.
But you don’t. You sit there, silent and stony-faced, feeling your heart race, hoping your cheeks aren’t red, because you don’t want him to know that you much. You keep silent, because you know, logically, that he doesn’t deserve the best of what you have to give, because he threw you away without so much as a backward glance,and like the mouse who was given a muffin, if you give him a story, soon you’ll want to give him your heart again, and you can’t risk that...
