The book The House of the World has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and is now available on Amazon.

No One There

It is an invisible shadow.
It has no sound.
No silence.
It is a parallel world.
A continent of stillness,
where the wind has no voice.
But there are people.
Crowds that step into the streets,
but not coming to a place.
No one waving to another.
Yet everyone holds a hand?

Here and there a smile
going somewhere.
A smile returned.
People move with shadows
behind them.
I am missing.
The wind goes through me.
There is a pillow over my ears.
I look into a mirror
and see what can’t be seen.
