i didn't know what to build first
so i just built
landscapes with no characters
flora without fauna
places to be

a soloist rarely in the foreground
adding objects to ecosystems
like a self portrait of a shadow
through glass facing the street

it's small talk with a barista
or an autobiography of a busy person
in a series of disorganized notebooks
punctuated by to-do lists

or a story with an abstract narrative
and a puzzle for a resolution

emotion without analysis.
landscape without what?
nature can be synthesized.
