Tanzen wir, oder?

Flashing lights illuminate
sweaty, exuberant faces
and I tilt my head back
reaching my arms to the ceiling
and examining my fingers
as they intertwine
and create their own dances,
as though aware of some other rhythm.

Tick tick

Time
slips through
my grasping fingers
as I search
for something tangible
to pin my spindling
thoughts to,
caught like threads
and tangled up.

404 Not Found

404: a technical error message indicating that an Internet address cannot be found. A weak link in communication, a misunderstanding located in the ether somewhere in between the human and technological worlds. Director Antoine Besse explores such themes in his short film of the same name

Shades of a Pacific sunset

The sun burns gold through orange to red.
Bodies emerge from the ocean
giggling, dragging themselves from waves to rocks
and back to waves,
before finally allowing the milky shallows
that reflect the burning sun
until the blue-grey turns to marbled shades of umber
to abide to a rhythm all of their own.
