Tuesday, April 7, 2009: On the Street….Raphael Lorenzini, Florence

Distressed: your favorite treatment for jeans and leather
Rarely registers across your fair face.
But, like the brand new denim that is pounded and streaked,
Scratched and bleached, you undergo treatments.
To benefit your surfaces. Artificial sun in which you bake,
Elixirs you apply under eyes and neck,
Dustings and powders in which you bask to bronze,
To darken, to treat so that you might appear
As if your environment affects you.
