"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


I am an artist and writer living and working in Berlin, Germany, with work published in numerous magazines in the U.S., the U.K. and Ireland. The poems are from one of a series of projects exploring the lyric potential of minimal forms based on various musical and/or literary models.

While still light

while still lightit ill becomes
to talk of all that's night
the fear of dreams
the dread sleep hides

the terror drawn to cry
the unconsoling screams

a child

still tries to findthe tone of it
the perfect pitch

the words
might still tellthe tenor of it

while it's light
