Scattered and messy

as sea shells on sandy beach

human blobs on earth

Time machine

The people of yore
looked up—for the sun told time
concrete towers now

Downtown Chicago as seen from above

The view

A glass window stands

between me and world beyond

my family home


That’s not the view from my home (ha, I wish). It’s downtown Chicago, as seen from the 84th floor of a rather small building—by Chicago’s standards. The window wasn’t too clean, but I like that it serves as a reminder of the barrier.

Building on

A stack of storeys

building one upon other

unwitting child’s dreams

Staten Island ferry ride, New York City

Ahoy!

Stuffed to the brim, drenched

the sailing folk, like canned beans,

sprawling seeing land
