I put my hand in front of my face to shield the sun.

My eyes closed, the rosen hue dimmed to grey black blue.

Eyes closed and arms outstretched, I lean into, with, within the engaged negation.

I, myself, the indivision intercepting that which I gestured to absorb.

Complementary shades pitched in their own projection.

An impressioned foothold on each impending plane.

This extension reciprocally reflected in a repeated approach to some thing concrete.

Organized by Jenni Crain. Presented with Bruno Smith.
