ON FALLING IS THE ONE THING I:

Placing haiku and photography in conversation with one another, falling is the one thing i is a cumulative, seventeen-syllable exercise in surrender; an active practice of yielding to physical, emotional, and psychological environments. Spanning 2015-2017, it is comprised of poems and images, ranging in subject from the follies of institutional oppression to love in the afterlife, through a black, queer intersectional lens. This collection is an intimate inquiry into the body, dreamscapes, and the aesthetic force of sidewalk stains.
