Recalling Hurricanes — the curve of longing

Watching the news with its relentless telling of horrors great fish swept up into the swirl creatures swimming in circles their instincts failing in the rising tides.

Minkowski’s Love Poem

Minkowski’s Love Poem

are forgiven   forgive me

bending the geometry of space time


to kiss you
