And You Too Have Come Into The World To Do This

I am so distant from the hope of myself (2022)

I have not done a thousand things (2022)

Except that they have no tongues (2022)

It is the nature of stone (2022)

One can't begin to imagine their weight (2022)

Into the secret trees (2022)

Against your bones knowing (2022)

The orderliness of the world (2022)

Sprawled in that motherlap (2022)

And you too have come into the world to do this (2022)

In 2022, I am in the studio working on a series of paintings reflecting on grief and the consolations I find in wild places, private rituals and being alone.
