starless sky
the black cord
to the fuse box

Windfall, 2017


the cooling dusk
a man boards the train
in the wrong direction

Presence 60, 2018


dusk entering the dog’s eyes peer through the wire

Blithe Spirit 28.1, 2018


in an abandoned store
a blank gaze

Under the Basho, 2017



walking home
the fracturing leaves
break the silence

Under the Basho, 2017



from the window
a distant car
carries the weight of air

Under the Basho, 2017
