  1. I love “Untitled,” “Block Island” (one of my favorite places), and “Cathedral,” which haunts me, reminding me of certain dreams I have had.

  2. walk at dawn, debris of all kinds
    crustaceans molt in fetal position
    by seaweed, red strokes of waves keep pulse

    white light weaves its way in and out
    an imagined rainbow
    is really the ribs in ancient primordial soup

    a complex mass of brain parts
    laid out with no shame
    all in good shape, if a little off-color

    stuck and need air in stained-glass tangle
    zany sensations turn anxious and inward
    still in recovery from Catholic culture

    ~ These are great, Russ, can’t wait to see them in the flesh.
