This one was caught soon after an encounter with a high schooler choking his girlfriend in the middle of the street. This was after a little staring session we we’re having after a similar kind of domestic violence “joke” he was playing. Typically, letting a young dude know he is seen is enough to get them to act as they should, but not this time. This time out of nowhere he grips the girl and slams her against the wall while she does kind of gasp laughs. I didn’t know what to do, but something had to happen. So I slapped him off her instinctively with no real plan of what to say. He looked me like I was crazy afterwards. He made no move to stop me or strike back, just stared at me. I mumbled something about this kind of thing beneath him, how he knew better then to play like this but in truth I was lost to where to beginning to explain how serious this thing he took for a game really was.
I walked around the neighborhood for near my whole lunch hour before stopping at a bench and writing this poem.
There is, incidentally, a tree of the knowledge of good and bad part 1. That one similarly plays with the line of the obscene and innocent. Or on the real, that one ACTUALLY does…while this is just sex as fun. That one….I don’t know if I’m gonna post that one…
Another video from the do.until.true. Again, the show went great by the way. We had some great lighting going on considering the gallery space. Excited about getting things together for a bigger scale production next time.
