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

 

mannequins
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
