the land of if

a work in progress

Just you wait :)

Selected Works

  • excerpt from the middle of an untold taleHer eyes closed tightly, their corners crinkled up like a chocolate candy wrapper twisted round its treasure.
  • rented, not ownedAnd if we’re really lucky, maybe we decide to go walk down to the park and share a few moments together.
  • bottle capThey never did. I was their intoxicant.
  • 3 reflectionsMadeline in the mirror, answering her unspoken questions…
  • vignettiaThe fog moved down from the mountains and slipped around the car like a cat preparing for sleep, and she moved.
  • in the dark, everyone’s a loverEverything around you wants in, everything within you wants out, and you cough, and she laughs like pine trees; and the man in you, he wants to dance.
  • the corner of If & MaybeAll you can offer is a weak blessing – the same blessing you’ve been offering yourself since you began this journey east – to home – to the land you know too well: I hope you get where you’re going okay.
