I am not the first person you loved.
You are not the first person I looked at
with a mouthful of forevers. We
have both known loss like the sharp edges
of a knife. We have both lived with lips
more scar tissue than skin. Our love came
unannounced in the middle of the night.
Our love came when we’d given up
on asking love to come. I think
that has to be part
of its miracle.

This is how we heal.
I will kiss you like forgiveness. You
will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms
will bandage and we will press promises
between us like flowers in a book.
I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat
on your skin. I will write novels to the scar
of your nose. I will write a dictionary
of all the words I have used trying
to describe the way it feels to have finally,
finally found you.

And I will not be afraid
of your scars.

I know sometimes
it’s still hard to let me see you
in all your cracked perfection,
but please know:
whether it’s the days you burn
more brilliant than the sun
or the nights you collapse into my lap
your body broken into a thousand questions,
you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
I will love you when you are a still day.
I will love you when you are a hurricane.

I’ve always been afraid to crank up the ISO on my camera because of the notorious image noise. This was taken at ISO2600 and I’m pleasantly surprised with the output. Even after #vscocam processing, the photo is still pretty sharp. And that cat was quite fidgety. XD

Coloring in Context with @finnanofenno

For more photos and videos of Carlo’s colorful cars, follow @finnanofenno on Instagram

"I want to let people think about social problems in a colorful and funny way," says Instagrammer Carlo Giardina (@finnanofenno), a student and freelance photographer living in Milan whose Instagram photos examine the issue of urban air pollution. He combines images of old cars with colored backgrounds he creates using a paint app on his smartphone, with his finger as the brush and his screen as the canvas. “Each photo has a meaning,” he says. “I’m really attached to them. For the green Volkswagen I just wanted to match the car and the house and tell something about pollution in a funny and maybe grotesque way using simple things like holes, circles and color.”

The wider Instagram community is also participating, sending Carlo their car shots using the #finnycar hashtag. “I’m inspired by the fact that with just one double tap you can meet the world and share your inner world with others.”
