ANSWER (TYPOGRAPHY) is an original poem written by Julie Marie Wade and interpreted by Layla Pizarro.

Pizarro is a multidisciplinary artist based in Chile. Her practice bridges two distinct realms: figurative realism and non-representational abstraction. Her works are a reflection of her days and her experiences, ranging from analog and digital painting to digital and experimental photography. She also uses AI as a generative tool.


You should know this. There are places
I won’t go in a poem, doors I won’t open,
chasms I won’t cross. The reason, Dear
Reader, is that there is someone I love more
than you, whose body beside mine is more
supple than this page, & for all my life,
I want my head to be welcome on her pillow.
