  • What brings me to the table? You ask.
    Curious & Compensating sits at the table.

    Curious is straightforward & speaks for itself.
    Compensating is complicated; years in a cave
    incomunicado, angry, forlorn.
    From the deepest recess I stared out at the light.

    Disease & dementia tore down my folk
    divorce & depression dwindled to despair.
    Ten years to out-run the fever
    ten years to a healthier self.

    Recently you hinted I assemble the portraiture of humanity;
    broken connectedness.

    Mirror the naked form of man & repeat:
    I am broken connectedness,
    I care about what I do.
