Half remembered, half from dreams, all that’s left is dirt and sky looks at love and intimacy through the prism of loss. Each movement is a fragment, a wisp, of what was, what is, what might be. After letting go of memories, of expectations, all that’s left is dirt and sky.
lonely, the sound of his heartbeat
lost in dreams
the salty taste of his memory
light, horizon’s calling
light, the twilight's yawning
light, the sky is burning
I yearn for home
the disillusioned communist still sells books on the corner
what propels us forward?
there was a cardinal outside my window
the steam rises from my coffee
I can hear the sound of your laughter in the other room
echoing into the horizon
