A symphony of a single night in San Francisco – utopian dream 
destination of queers and misfits.

They’ve written endless songs about this city.
Can you feel the street’s pulse, how it rushes through your veins like a drug?
He’s in trouble, she’s falling in love, they’re cheating, she’s trapped and he’s alone.
But keep moving since we mustn’t fall behind.

promiscuous/cities encompasses a night in a big city where each of us is frantically 
maintaining the myth of ourselves we’ve created. Yet underneath the vision of 
ourselves that we peddle on social media – like! – there is an aching 
distance between us.​​​​​​​
