Selected Work
 
votive candle―
the shadow of the flame 
turns with the wind
 
protruding ears―
father
son
grandfather's picture
 
 
 
boats―
seagulls that go
seagulls that come
 
four street lamps―
my shadows
are all the same
 
 
 
clothes hung-out―
a kitten in the street 
scratches the shadows
 
tattoo―
another name
over mine
