New words in issue 2 of Archivio magazine. I haven’t published much for a while as I was finishing a novel, but here’s a new piece.

I've contributed a short text to the publication Loose Associations edited by Daniel C. Blight , which accompanies 'Made You Look' (Dandyism & Black Masculinity) curated by Ekow Eshun .

For their punishment, they are forced to wear coats or cloaks that are beautiful on the outside, but lined inside with heavy lead, forcing them to bend over and struggle to move.
