When life and love turn strange

Up, Down.

Atong ArjokIt's hard to make that change,
When life and love turn strange
And cold.

     Neil Young, A Man Needs A Maid, Harvest, 1972.

(Wikipedia: Atong Arjok, born October 5th, 1985, is a American-Sudanese model. She was discovered in Los Angeles by L.A. Models. Five foot nine Sudanese model Atong Arjok is one of the top Nubian models to have hit the runway since Alek Wek.)

Who cares? Who knows? Who wants to know? The Good Samaritan? Keep in mind, the Good Samaritan is (just?) a story. As well, once turned, mere communication (mere?) is more-and-more problematic.

Oluchi OnweagbaBut you will wind up
Peeking through her keyhole
Down upon your knees.

     Bob Dylan, She Belongs To Me, Bringing It All Back Home, 1965.

(Wikipedia: Oluchi Onweagba, born August 1, 1980, is a Nigerian model. Reportedly she was discovered selling bread on the streets of Lagos in order to make ends meet.)

Alek WekJoy to the world, the Lord is come,
Let earth receive her King.
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing.

     Isaac Watts, The Psalms of Da­vid, 1719.

(Wikipedia: Alek Wek, born 16 April 1977, is a Sudanese Supermodel who appeared on the catwalks at the age of 18 in 1995. She is from the Dinka ethnic group in the Sudan, but in 1991 she and some family members fled to Britain to escape the civil war between the Muslim north and the Christian south of the Sudan. She later moved to the United States.)
