Against a Wall. Academia, Florence, Italy. February, 2010.
from the series, On a Wall

Time has a strange way of making sense of ourselves itself
Dylan and the Nobel Prize, against the persistent simmer of real ache
The wall, up against which many of us feel helplessly heading
A clarity that is too sharp, tapping its way across ridges and into the graft
It is not enough to be acknowledged for giving voice
It is better to just be the archaeologist’s brush,
uncovering

It took me six years to refind these photographs
