Late night FM DJ voice

Late night FM DJ voice has a certain charm about it.

Rain

The skin of my hand is peeling off but it doesn't hurt anymore. I remember keeping my hand under running water for a long time and I was staring at the window above the sink. This burn reminded me of my early years. I would be on the bike with my brothers and my foot… Continue reading Rain

Returning home
