Artist Statement


Calling someone on a land

line in the apartment

they left,

Inevitably and impossibly,

for something long-desired

But lacking shape

as of yet.


Past thought as present

Reality. Before Christ, until

the Western appropriation of

cyclical time.

The tornado starting on Putnam 

Avenue and deteriorating,



in Philadelphia.


A tidal wave from Rome

With memories of

Its ancient conquerors

Enslaving women.

Copies of another culture,

cooked with olive oil

And a lack of salt.
