“My B-side is a place where sometimes, I don’t recognise myself
I need to inhabit it and submerge myself,
to listen only to the depths of my own inner self.
In its corners, I find a silence
sometimes dense and confusing,
others placid and comforting.
A space of dark and empty earth, possible and fertile.
Like the seed that does not know it is a flower,
from within everything takes shape,
And so it takes shape outside,
And what is in me is what I inhabit,
is what I show.
And from my shadow, I create.”
