In head-to-toe vintage, model Paloma Elsesser puts our hearts on wings. The poet in her asks, “Who’s been getting busy? Devouring the literature, giving the grace, de-centering, uprooting and tending the trauma, sowing the joy? My avatar been getting fed, my shadow is getting sunlight, the heart sings less lonely songs.”
