A view (15)

18 October 2004, around 17.55.

Waterfront park, ca. 6.30 a.m.

I looked, as if for the first time. I looked at people and at the order of things for the first time and I saw, I saw simply, and understood simply, understood with every last drop of me all of it – how people have set things up – isn’t the real thing. And so it will not be that way, because I do not wish it.
