In the grainy recesses of my mind,
I can feel that yellow warmth:

The heat of a winter radiator,
jammed too high,
making more than just the windows perspire,
who’s thirsty? want water? I’ll get it.

The mechanic hum rattling the glass,
nuking that impossibly orange cheese,
on inexplicably present burgers,
from whence? to where?

The fuzzy flannel of friendship,
animating a busy kitchen where we celebrate,
discarding our hard shells of the day,
to the compost? to the bin?

It’s become apparent that I’ve made too many eggs.




For the next few weeks Hot Tub Astronaut will be publishing photographs from Stéphanie Hornstein’s ongoing series The Joys of Anticipation. This project pairs analogue photography with the written word in an effort to get to the heart of a moment—the very moment that the shutter snapped.

A native Montréaler, Stéphanie is currently pursuing a master’s in Art History at the University of Edinburgh. Her research interests centre around the place of women in Victorian photography and the intersection of gender with fibres art practice.
