Selected Work
 
starless sky
the black cord
to the fuse box
 
mannequins 
in an abandoned store
a blank gaze
 
 
 
the cooling dusk
a man boards the train
in the wrong direction
 
walking home 
the fracturing leaves 
break the silence
 
 
 
dusk entering the dog’s eyes peer through the wire
 
from the window
a distant car
carries the weight of air
