In collaboration with Burberry and Paper Magazine, Max created a poem to define millennial excess and Dalston nights out.

‚Äč

You told me to see more of the world, so I did.

 

Got so lost in the night that all my wishes turned neon

dancing a glitter bomb of nothingness. Y’know,

I’ve seen streets paved by ashen boys fumbling with their keys.

When you say I don’t understand, I wanna ask you

to stare in the mirror and say that back.

All I am is someone looking for a way home across parallels.

Trying to shift myself through time zones so that I can sit

next to you, like nothing’s happened. These octopus

black nights spread out like galaxies above us, unite us.

Look up, walk with me, get lost in a city that’s not your home

while I try to trace these endless evenings back to you
