Laying Waste

I am drawn to see deeply into paper artifacts,
mass-produced and found photographic images of our interiors and exteriors—
where we have lived.

Informed by the hard-won optimism of early Surrealists
who, despairing of dishonest Armageddon-serving
rationality, learned to mine their subconscious archives
for truthful insights,
I add collaged clues to these scenes to better witness
the wall to wall secrets—
how we have lived

within our architectural bodies,
built to shelter but also to contain and shape us.
