When the tourist bus comes around my hood, they wave at me because they know that I am a visual oasis. And it’s something that’s needed. A visual oasis that relieves people of the stress of what’s out here already. It’s almost like a mirage. I am the water that not here, that people are thirsting for. They see this visual oasis and they thirst for it. And when they grab it, it’s not even there.
