SYNOPSIS:
« Promenade d’une femme solitaire et plongée dans ses pensées. Ses yeux et le paysage qui l’entoure ne faisant qu’un.
Une femme en filigrane.
Les ondulations du temps sont les lignes noires et grises des aiguilles anti-horaires de son existence. » /
« A WANDER OF A LONELY WONDERING WOMAN. HER EYES AND THE SURROUNDED LANDSCAPES MAKE ONE MIND.
A WOMAN IN WATERMARK.
THE UNDULATIONS OF TIME WITHIN STRAIGHT BLACK AND GREY LINES AS ANTI-CLOCKWISE OF HER EXISTENCE. »
ML 2014

CANDICE WORDS by Neil Carlill:
« Through a finger frame (s)he sees her
Afternoon climbs before the mirror. 
Head-dress like a famous doll (s)he sees her. 
Pen. Seas. Girl.  
Styled aboard the shoreline.
(Only the cold air can wake me.)

Pen. Girl.  
Styled aboard the shoreline.

I’m worn loud, outside moving in the blur of a seaside headline
and point counter point storytelling.

The charm of pen to Persona
The painful light of certain disaster.

I’m lost on me, forgotten drinks pour shelves into questions on the up.
There again nothing seems to finish in the place provided.
Rise early to greet the latest of sour days.

Land escapes the ice.
The eyes return a dissolve in 32 frames per second
(It’s a truce to feel selfish and alone)
32 locked targets for a sound illustration
(Only the cold air can wake me.)
It’s a truce to feel selfish and alone. 

Only the cold air can wake me. »
(Original text by Neil Carlill for Candice, 2013)
