Tuesday, June 7


A man is singing into a microphone on a music channel. Singing hard, his voice hoarse. Close-up: you can see the triangular chips in his teeth, the open pores in his skin, the straining tendons in his neck. Sweat is forming, tiny drops of dew on his cheeks. His face isn't the shape it ought to be if he wants to be seen as beautiful. His gums jut forward, there are deep creases around his eyes. The camera is loving him. He is beautiful.
