New York: A Portrait [3]

we have sat on walls suspended
above black text in white boxes

SONY DSC

explaining who what when and why
for where is of little relevance since
we are
(w)here

SONY DSC

amongst the walkers, beneath eyelash-ed layers of encrusted time is a quiet sight to still a surrealist eye
and prompt spiraling exhalations of desire

for possession
is achieved only when the view is accepted as larger than the perspective allows

SONY DSC
you

are a triptych of primary colors streaking at geometric we’s to disturb a languishing natural repose acquired through reflecting in a mirror.

We are a gallery built in looks themed ‘a moment’s notice.’
