13 April–1 June, 2024
Soft Opening at Paul Soto,
2271 West Washington Blvd,
Los Angeles

Whispered - at the top of my lungs
you rest on the lips of the
broken, smacked and smothered.


Wistful woes
or wisdom wonder

Successor of The Work. New Wor(l)d.
More than that;

perceived. -er.
In emergence we find light for this dark room
Rimmed with saints who expire at the touch of the living’s
breath, therefore,
no holy in this spirit
or, on being the pronounced dead.
