a fictional rendering of factual events as told through the words and sounds one of Republica’s most decorated artist, Maryam de Capita.

To have an attempt made upon you and have it fail is a triumph; a crown they said. It was these angels that told me to build a temple and dedicate it to what I loved most, to all the the most beautiful nights and also to the worst one. Honor it’s catalytic evil —take it’s teeth out, and put them in your mouth. In all of their direct and indirect ways they told me that our story is the art and the art is our story. Listen to mine and above all else, tell your own.
