A Woman’s Worth

The greatest sin the world forbids a woman to do, is love herself.

See, she is the wife before she is an  individual. The mother  who

cares for herself last. Someone’s sister or aunt. She never belongs

to herself. God forbid she does.

— Day Sibley, A Woman’s Worth

The camera makes everyone a tourist in

other people’s reality, and eventually in one’s own.

— Susan Sontag

 

Señora de la Luz

I look away
blushing
getting lost in her hazel eyes
every time I look at her.

Untitled Nine

I am the pariah

in the company

of my own self.

— To’Wednesday Sibley, Untitled Nine
