Then his lips turned blue,

Not like a sea, nor a sky.

Like death. Like "goodbye."

About the Creator

I’m a writer, a storyteller, a lunatic. I imagine in a parallel universe I might be a caricaturist or a botanist or somewhere asleep on the moon — but here, I am a writer, turning moments into multiverses and making homes out of them.
