A first-person travelogue of my trip to Miami for the Ultra Music Festival. I flew out there with some friends from Vegas as a last-minute adventure.
The festival basically overtakes Miami for a couple weeks, turning the already lurid city into an EDM-fueled fever dream. My goal was to capture the surreal and seductive experience of navigating it all: glowstick playgrounds by night, bathwater beaches by day, lobster restaurants by streetlight, and the feeling that I might wake up at any moment.

Calm Before the Storm
My soul was calm before the storm,
before the realization of what was the norm,
for in the darkened hour and words exchanged,
who would have known a life was changed.
Right-side-up was turned up-side-down,
and my life vest failed as I began to drown,
but no one saw it and no one would see
how I was left all alone amongst the debris
of what was now and what was before
and my broken soul that lay scattered on the floor.
And as if on cue, the storm did come,
washing away the pieces of what I had become.
Still the clouds cried above me as my own tears drained,
tears that were bottled and I thought were contained.
But with no umbrella or an end in sight,
I sat huddled in misery through the darkened night.
And though day would break, the sun never came,
for I knew that the storm had long extinguished my flame.
Yet I had still hoped there would be an alteration
that would see to it that I got salvation,
but when truth is false and myths are fact,
what we thought was real was merely abstract.
So as I sit here and think while not wanting to conform,
I'll remember back to when all was calm before the storm.
