installation at Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, PA

what the camera sees/ from the center of the center
my life: a video that blanks on approach.
in a mess hall
i allowed shoddy construction workers to build stones on my heart.

a hall full of pillows, giant bags of cocaine
white rain, black water
crying corridors of damp body catchers

i will not repair.
the snow comes down and in
covers the chips of history. the broken glass, the tangled roots.
not like the fake pristine park-snow.
a real ruin made beautiful
