PERISHABLE PROOF is a flipping, text walking poem and bookwork created with words found and gathered in Toronto, Ontario on March 19th, 2018. These images are a few of the pages of the bookwork. And the following is the poem.

 

PERISHABLE PROOF

 

pain

phases out memories now

persistently challenges

building spaces

it’s

only by hunch

maintaining narratives from within

working an opening, feeling a

slice

drawing

visions of

adhesive actions

stolen back

to ask questions

&

repair repairs

imaging

locally make

type

to ink open

a whisper of red

I

practice the

wondrous

walking

stories, healing a ghost

sewing cadence

from

raw pieces

of the recurring cherry moon
