POETRY


How patient is one
Till thy disembody oneself
How much tolerance does thy take from an external foe - till one resists?

Point on tolerance
The boundary
Compression
Compressed is thy thresh-hold?

Elements unravel
Taken from one's thoughts to the sphere

Sphere of Clarity
Sphere of protection 

 

Thy, 2015


Loss

Memory Re-insertion

Re-commissioned Destroyed

Intimacy of the forgotten harvest consumed in public space

Pack a box and leave with it 

 

Loss, 2015


Into the flow
Against the turn
Inside the aperture – around sound
Inside the spectrum – surrounded confusion

Captured by adrenalin – suspended difference

Clicking motion
Perspective vision
Summoning type
Translating perception

Who are they; what is that; don’t look

Leaving them behind
Turning away
Don’t look

Offering a chin; a glance; a stare Forgetting the encounter

Summoning the system
Sensing the fright

Silver

No vernacular: Stare
Truth
Trick

Feature

Process Reject Depart Memory

Dosage proven; change minds

Proven change; vernacular

Systematically perverting history

Systematically cementing memory in confusion

No nal thought
Pulsating light
Fighting the course of silver Jumping time
Abducting other

Corner of vision
Below light
Darkness in systems pushing forward Inserted
The power of the trick
The process of rejection
Beware the ventriloquist
Inside the box
Vision

Concept, 2017

 


1.

Inside you it travels

Meandering stream

Outside you it devours

The ocean

Touching the screams

No more humanity

All below, sweet beds of boils

2.

Can you become darker in the flames?

Licking your skin

3.

Inside… licking your wounds

4.

Above the shadow

Peering the corner

Allowing the substance

Seeping alone

Wobbling confusion – jumping.

Tedious I know – special effects.

Culpable driving

Surviving

Vessel...

Carrier

Transmitter

Manipulator

Attachment

Desire

Addictions

Power

Obsessive

Ruler of dangerous ideas

Instigator of secrets

Destroyer of all histories

Possessor of us

Trickster

Promotes longing

Threatens to destroy all memory

Erased re-written

Subjugated and blasphemy

Sunken in time

Delineates nothing

Engenders all

Supposedly dead but always alive

Staring back

Unforgiving hypnotism

Its owner, stolen away or dead, passes to the next – outliving all…it’s lovers.
