Maya Hristova - Persona

Maya Hristova (*1987 in Sofia)


Wandering out at night and looking at what people are looking for.
Searching for something authentic, but what does it mean?
It’s all a mask, they say. No one is real, not even you.
Time is not certain. The nights, the bars, the shots, the incessant music. Not true.
I keep on walking, but to me it seems real – how they are looking for love.
Women my age, all that desire, their lips full.
The tension. All the faces. Lost.
The pot is still melting, but inside it’s becoming solid and cold.
