🐚 I spoke without air, talking of light — but long ago a towheaded girl in a suburb bought a Kodak camera with thirty dollars amassed saving her allowance. Her pain shuttered photos; she became me. 🐚

para ofrecer la síncopa como compensación por mi
latido a medias, alterando el ritmo de los momentos interrogativos.
En definitiva, perder el tiempo.

🐚 half-hearted beat, altering the rhythm of interrogative moments. 🐚
🐚 Ultimately, wasting time. 🐚
