winter sun
some trains are louder
than others


winter vegetables

the turin yarn

held together by things 
beyond our understanding...
winter shower

I went to Turin looking for De Chirico. Instead I found a giant ball of yarn covered in snow and shadows cast by the avenue's marble columns. In the shade a girl sits reading a book about the camera being the biggest liar of all.

god doesn't believe in you

If there is a god he probably doesn't give a shit about you. The same way rocks don't give a shit about you. The same way waves don't give a shit about you. The same way hat get blown around in the wind.

first dream
reflecting in the window
a woman's face


behind the fogged up window
a black cat

the smallest universe

warm day a workmen's portable toilet


clear sky
strawberries find themselves
in last night’s rain


alien megastructure
a speck of dust

a cautionary tale of wanting to describe being a blancmange if you’re a chocolate eclair

He spends his whole life trying to find objectivity - he looks under rocks; 
he goes to country markets; he visits brothels. etc. In side of it all a 
spider tries to speak walrus; a planet tries to be a confectionary stand. 
A triangle asking for a sweet bun upon realising it is a triangle and has 
neither money nor an appetite, breaks down in tears - why can’t i be 
something else it mutters.
