"... 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.

Not as now

not as now as was not then
as now it one day will be

choose your words with care
appraise them pass them
by your ear to hear how
what passed for thought

passes now for sound

or pause

for now

then listen
to the silence of the light
the sound of night
