Noel Zheng: Through My Looking Glass

THROUGH MY LOOKING GLASS

.

New York presents itself as one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, with the projections of the high life. But in reality, especially for such a fast-paced, goal-oriented city, the dreams that drove people to this place can easily be pushed to the back in a quick wisp of ‘need to do this, and that’… and before anyone knows it, that one self-deserving person is moulded into another passer-by; one in the other eight million people in this city of all cities.

But New York is really something, because people don’t lose hope. I mean, amongst all the elegant skyscrapers, and street vendors, and honking taxis, and fast-paced people, and get- the-f***-out-of-my-ways, a city so big is bound to have something for someone. But maybe it is just that: that New York can give you exactly what you want, but only when you don’t want it.

Every time I go, New York is a little bit different. This time, it felt nostalgic even though I never grew up there; it seemed dull yet vital; it carried a connotation of melancholy, of a honey-will-you-be-back-for-dinner, of a time that seemed to have just slipped through our fingers before us noticing it was gone.

Through these series of photographs, I capture New York City through my view-finder; through my looking glass; through the perspective that I encouraged myself to see. Although you might not find your New York in this, I see a snippet of my New York; and isn’t that the most powerful thing about this? For every photo to tell a slightly different story for everyone; just like the city I try to tell about.

COULD IT BE HIS KISS?

.

Could it be his kiss?

Well, it sure as Hell ain’t bliss

In his squint there’s something amiss

Could it be what’s in his kiss?

Or, far worse than delusion is what we dread

Tiny hands are nothing compared to the voices inside his head

The world loves you, Donald!

No matter how vicious you are to the powerless poor

The world loves you, Donald!

With a glint in his eye, smiling budgeter Mick “The Meat Cleaver” Mulvaney slickly slices the throat

The world loves you, Donald!

Reality TV is nothin’ we’re gonna laugh at now

Omarosa is the real deal, standin’ by your side

Could it be his kiss?

Maybe like an anesthetic, his magical pucker holds followers to sway in euphoric ecstasy

Any way the wind blows, can be like the truth or lies

Blow, baby, blow!

Surprise! Surprise! Surpise!

It’s Kellyanne “The Fact Whisperer” Conway, getting ready for her expanding 15 on the fly

The world loves you, Donald!

Daily detractors have met their match in Sean “The Man Tryin’ To Keep A Straight Face” Spicer

The world loves you, Donald!

And, who could forget that man of callous cannon, Steve “The Bureaucratic Blaster” Bannon

If their minds can match, why can’t their lips?

Could it be his kiss?

Wake up, world!

That conning pie hole ain’t worth the risk

Selling wolf tickets like they’re going out of style

What’s in his kiss?

Something ever so vile

That kinda affection he’s bringin’ forth is a poisonous mile

Kiss off!

Ban this!

Piss off!

Ban that!

Grease up and pucker hard

The world loves you, Donald!

And, the world is your dance card
