Alexandre Farto a.k.a. Vhils (London)
There was once a little boy who had many extraordinary powers.
When he was younger, he could change colors to blend in to his background.
It was a game he used to play.
Blend in to pretend.
“I’m a camouflaged soldier! Nobody can find me here. I’m safe from:

Crusted and dream drunk
rise the eyes to ride
none other than those saffron skies.
Aubergine silks pool at the edge of the world
to serve the drowsy tomorrowers,
blanketing a distant land

facing a reality just dreamt away.
She sits still and vigilant,
with eyes of flame and a brow only one man could ever see.

to reveal a dirty truth.
So we pray to Allah,
it ‘tis but a dream.
