luminous work

Image-maker. In poetry, sound art, theater, collage.

i make things from words.  things that intend towards light.  here is that round box from the attic.  inside, letters, photographs, unlabeled cassette tapes.  some embossed invitations to my imaginative parties, which are select and increasingly irregular.  like you, i grow old.  i keep my hands busy and my mind occupied.  if it would be better to hold something in your hands other than a machine send me a message and i will send you something real.

staring at a wall

Lost Films of Theda Bara is published in FENCE as in don't fence me in.  Literature without boundaries.

Lost Films is unbounded, except for one wall.  A blank wall upon which I watch the lost films of silent-screen star Theda Bara.  Have you seen them?  I like them because they don't exist.  I like films that make me think.

So...a personal essay disguised as film criticism.  Followed by four poems that are scripts for silent film scenes.
