A place to shake it off (2014)

I’ve got to travel and change my space. The viruses have caught up to me. They have latched on. Mold has formed on my mind.


Night Watch (2014)

Night Watch

Batteried Elixir (2014)

The people with flashlights go down the pier
Into the darkness
Into the surf
Beams bifurcated by darkened objects now illuminated
Mysteries reveal themselves constantly
It is what it must be like to be a child
Seeing a star for the first time
To keep that wonder is a talent
To keep revealing mysteries is a youth elixir
To keep the batteries charged in the flashlight and the beam moving is to engage the dark and see the light
