September 1, 2014 | kirin


  This piece is inspired by a really long night at the hospital. Someone I loved very much wasn’t very well and they had all these machines hooked up to them. I remember not really being able to sleep and focusing on the beeping of the machines, the drip of a tap and imagining the …
