...", Resist much and obey little:

Once unquestioning obedience, once fully enslaved;

Once fully enslaved, no nation, state, city of this earth, ever afterward ever resumes its liberty." 

(Walt Whitman, Cautions, from Leaves of Grass)


These pieces are form of physical poetry.  

The sensations which I can not articulate with words I try to capture from life and immortalize in the work.
