See, Study, Spy


Clothing was a vital element to See, Study, and Spy. There’s a sense of locker-room intimacy to the paintings, as if all three could be placed in the same setting. 

Views is a multi set collection of paintings, photographs, paper arts, and digital media. The first set is painted landscaped over male forms found and rendered from queer content websites. Paintings are on canvas. See, Study, and Spy are 12×12, $360 each. 

Haiku & Photography

1,701.

Grecian is the cast

Of my stomach; flat but curved.

Mercurial thoughts.

~

1,702.

Overcast morning

Matches my quiescent thoughts;

Feet run their own pace.

1,703.

Play of light upon

The weeds and I’m reminded

Of my place in life.

~

1,704.

Anticipating

Change at the threshold; first day

At my new workplace.

~

1,705.

Team building workshops

In a brand new facility;

Teachers, eager-faced.

~

1,706.

Pandora’s box of

Jitters and fears; first day

Ends the same, with Hope.

~

1,707.

There’s freedom in the

Spin of my bicycle wheels;

I’m headed to work.

~

1,708.

Second day and the

Bonds grow, youthful connections

That help learning flow.

~

1,709.

It flows, ocean waves

Of traffic; small and large we

Break upon stoplights.

~

1,710.

In the shade of the

Towers we plan for small things,

Preparing for school.

~

1,711.

Pump and spin – piston

Thighs burn but unencumbered

I fly: bicycle.

~

1,712.

Golden rooftops and

Peeking sun glint outside my

Window, day’s begun.

1,713.

Though down to twenty,

The bird flies with heated words;

I hate commuters.

~

1,714.

Loads spinning in rows

As men wait, silently in

Separate spaces.

~

1,715.

Lazy Saturday:

Grabbing tacos and TV;

Friends, dinner – later.

~

1,716.

Gummy Bear Eating:

Green and yellow and orange,

Ending red and clear.

~

1,717.

Headed home under

Twinkling stars, the sea crashes

Ashore to my right.

~

1,718.

We trust you to teach,

They say. A refreshing change;

Communication.

~

1,719.

Yoga and sunset

Mark the hour;  days go quickly

When in Fun’s power.

~

1,720.

In the space between;

Breath, sunset, the little death –

Bardo asanas.

1,721.

Downtown street from my

Bicycle; freedom flies in

The spaces between.

~

1,722.

Phone, laptop, desktop –

I want to escape these screens

And watch my TV.

~

1,723.

What do you believe?

Why? Start there and work outward:

Powerful thinking.

~

1,724.

In the morning sun,

The chicks flap by, backpacks close,

On their way to school.

~

1,725.

Testing routes to work,

So far each one’s similar

Just with different scenes.

~

These haiku first appeared on Twitter in August, 2012. Status Haiku, available for download, is a collection of my first 1,000 haiku with selected photographs.
