The Oil in the Arctic

drilling for love in all the wrong places

his face was the arctic,
and his eyes were the oil wells
when i looked at him i could see all the beauty and pain
and it made me want to cry

Don’t forget to eat.

At a red hot light

At a red hot light

a bang like a shrill vacuum

stampeded my father who

ceremonially

looked up through the blue in his windshield

at the small-town sky in anticipation for

death from above.

Instead a crying girl

apologized for the bumper

unaware

she drove the black carriage

that transplanted him back

to his mostly suppressed youth in a

monastery in Lebanon

where he’d buried the dead between bombings

because the other boys were too afraid of ghosts.

88

Maybe it wasn’t 88

but that’s how I always remember it.

88 Ashkars I will never meet

slaughtered under cars, in their homes.

30 years and 7,000 miles away I’m safe and

I couldn’t imagine losing 88 (or so).

Occupying Pittsburgh, New York, Cincinnati, and Columbus

With the great help of Sarah Achor (Photographer, Artistic Consultant), Mathilda Longfellow (Artist and Performer) and Miharu Kato (Photographer) I am almost completed with my stop motion animated short film centering on the two sides of mathilda longfellow both as a confident bombshell and as a quirky boy. Over the past few weeks I’ve been to New York City for the hospitality motivation artists and Halloween, Cincinnati for the boys the dancing and the conversation and to Pittsburgh for the food the friends the dancing and here is some documentation of all of it.
