haiku about a potential kiss


  1. This is captivating. The play with scale here seems to echo "your" relationship with the moon -- at times planetary in scale, then geographic, and then close and intimate as a kiss. The white on black representation of the text (pixelated in the middle panel in extreme close-up, showing that there's more color in black and white than, well, black and white) seems to capture the idea of moonlight. That is, this is text on a screen more than text on a page -- a text of glowing half-light.

    And then the jumble of words in the last panel. I am still processing that. A pretty chaos coming into focus? All the other possibilities in this potential kiss? So many really interesting ways to read that.

  2. thank you so much! It's so great to read such words.
