Selected Work
flock of crows
the field by the house
changes color
field of flowers
I am getting off
not at my stop
refugee camp
pork and beef cooking
in one pan
difficult decision
in every direction
wind in the brain
for a minute
merges with the crescent
cross on the dome
you keep staring
the wrong way
