Course Coordinator and Deputy Director CEMUS






That of an institution when

You are alone with it


Buzzing, Humming, Wailing

No human

Only space

Halls, Walls, Whiteness


Of skin and heat


Hold me while I exhale

She says

Tell me everything is going to be OK

Reply, Explain

Nothing is ever OK

You still matter


Look out that window and see

A bird
