EMPTY CITIES

 

EMPTY-CITIES-low-res

 

 

Some of the images are of
the image making process,

some of the selected photos
show the selection process:

outlines of identity distorted,
single sounds with many overtones.

Planes drone above a distant city
as futile protest blurs in the square;

lost in private utopias, passers-by
take the bus in the other direction.

Yellow light spills on to the page
as lightning crackles through stained glass.

Armed guards in the hallway admire
the skin of a nation burnt to a crisp.
