How glorious is this?! Upcycling at its finest…
Steeped green tea and mate with lavender and mint, practicing on owls and skies. But I wish I was embarked on a canoe floating away underneath a spring sun⛅
These great washes of episodic light
across the walls—how facile
the reduction of passage to shape, and yet.
Once when I was burning
tracks away from home on hurried legs
the city appeared to me as a collection of boxes
in the streetlamps’ gloaming—
windows punched out of the dusk in proportion—
and complications resolved themselves
into simple desire.
Selfish but without remand.
Here I put what doesn’t reflect
a perfect symmetry.

‘Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,’ said the artist. (read the rest here).
