t-mag Visual Residency #8: EL PELELE

Carita Triste by El Pelele

"I wake up, and I see what I want to see,

just what I want to see.

My new profile pic is him,

uglier than ever.

My phone is a crystal ball.

Notifications come and go.

I open them

and open them again.

The screen turns off, and I see myself

prettier than ever.

The screen turns on

and everything’s like that dream

where I fade away

in front of the mirror."
