Virginia stills: Richmond dreaming
In Richmond Virginia the air hangs heavy like a wet rag dripping, breathing moisture. A man inhales a cigarette behind a beat up corner store, sits beside a crate of soda cans, exhales. The smoke is suspended, caught in mid-curl. The streets in the summer are empty at midday except for strays left panting in the shade, seeking some respite from the heat that hangs like a wet rag, dripping.
