Insomnia

Sometimes I can’t sleep at night, I toss and turn, alarm bells and laughter going off in the street. Honking cars in my dreams. I can’t get no peace. So I get up and get dressed and toss on my shoes and walk through Hongpailou. Sometime I remember to bring my camera. These shots were taken between 2-4am a month or so ago. People were out eating barbecue, drinking baijiu, getting their freak on.

I ended up sitting at one table and talking politics as usual. Drank baijiu till i felt the weariness in my bones. The night was just starting to recede when I got home and collapsed. Musta been 5 minutes later that the house woke up and shook me back in from dreams of sizzling pig fat and smoke stained teeth.
