The Escape

Can you take me out of here and keep your mouth shut about it? When we’re far away will you slow down and ajar your door, and let a new bracket of sun shine on my face and my tiny little bag? If my life’s over can the living start, if the buzzer sounds can the buzzing stop, if jumping off a building is like jumping on a train— Then let one take courage and the other take me out of here.


ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER- Ara Hagopian’s debut book “What Happened to Vicky Lee? A Collection of Stories” is out now:


About Ara Hagopian's The LITERATE Show

For over thirty years, I have enjoyed drawing beautiful shapes and writing complementary stories. The imagery tends to focus on our place in the world—whomever or whatever we may be. I am influenced by Twentieth Century history—I read vintage magazines, books and letters. Inspiration comes from visualizing human achievement and personal interaction—derived from people, places and things which may be obscure, but never insignificant. My pen-and-ink THE MAGNIFICENT RECOVERY was selected by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for their 2008 summer art auction.

One Response to The Escape

  1. Scott says:

    This is a great photo and blurb.

    I always considered this, or a cargo ship as a better decision than jumping from a building or anything so final. I would embrace the adventure and the unknown rather than leaving a mess, either physically or emotionally behind me.
