exam hall to Soho
rainfall to ice-cream
scarf to scarlet dress
2017 saw the disintegration of the university.
The abolition of traditional restraints.
The radical redistribution of time and space.
The creation of new paints.
Settings of rapid transitions paved the way
for the emergence of Mafia Girl.
She, the alleyway bridging the old town and new town, drifts on a raft.
Puts her hands in the water of time.
Unlike her brothers, her position is ensured
not through physical violence.
She pivots, laughing, in micro-degrees
between societal segments.
The silent buffer between the zig
and the zag of passing cars,
she saps the nectars of the world,
feeding her own honey jar.
The sweetness of this language
she will not translate
to the boroughs of people and ideas
that she connects and separates.
Mafia girl enjoys the gaps
between people configurations.
The very silence from which she drinks
leads to uncharted directions.
