Januray 5th, the day Omri died. I still call him fanboy, and still know the exact shape of his face, his gestures, his fingers, his hands. I would photograph him for hours when we lived together. He believed in me long before I did.


Omri, March 16, 2003:

Speak like love notes
not like a machine
I want to hug everyone with an aching back
I found a place of silence
within a hard day
if I lose it all
at least I have my soul
to bargain for
and if my love
won’t come from above
I will digg in the ground
and find it.
