'City Blocks' is a series of translations that transpose image into text. Each poem is an evocation of an image, reimagining the city from visual data, rather than a poem about the experience of that place.
"There is a picture of the three/ Of us, skin showing only/ Around the eyes eyes and in/ Water-streaks on our legs."
"Against an ambivalent sky,/ Moving quick across the ground,/ A child ran/ Trying to catch the sun."
"At three am, everything is different. The skyline floats / on the east river while the emperor looms dark and silent. / Nothing means what it did when sleep fills your throat."
"Where the source is, who that creator is, and what His powers are, / hear all these from Me in brief." A cento as creation myth.
