Double Vision

The windows acted as mirrors while I took these photographs at the Central Library, Downtown Indianapolis. The Festival of Lights tree was still lit as pictured in the second photo.

Leaving too soon

I had hoped to move downtown Indianapolis during the summer, particularly in the Fletcher Place Neighborhood. Those plans have changed and we are looking elsewhere due to unexpected developments. I am busily packing my life away. A soul on hiatus. I am going to miss this Fletcher Place.

I am spending as much time as possible, over the next few months, to capture as much of Fletcher Place’s essence as humanly possible. Soon it will be a ghostly voice speaking to me.

cats eye

cat jumped out at me, stared into my soul and that is how my story goes…

do any of us know
what we are doing?
i just sat there,
or i should say -i
am sitting here, typing
away from home

and the people walk
past the window
and i look out to wonder
focus my attention
when the cats eye
stares back at me -on my computer screen,

and i swear it winks, “Go for it!”, a small attempt to keep me focused

as i turn my head away. i need
no more of this prompting
too many projects to finish,
i barely keep my eyes open
and i am not winking
back -at you.

i am at st. clair street
between meridian and pennsylvania
and the windows are mirrors
reflecting back to me
a person to know
and she is only coming round today.

Sacred sayings

Indianapolis 2016

Sacred sayings or desecration
i cant say i understand
parking garage art
pictures and words

888 and valuing 7, 5, 3… 2
existing meaning, a vacuum
SLAM! ready for blast off
rocket into space and time.
