A jig-saw puzzle of geography.
Archipelagos of islands.
Coastlines.
The wakes of boats
etched
into the ocean sheen
like forgotten streets,
telltale ghosts
of passage,
border crossings—
goods and people
leaving home.

A fictional Greek island. A fisherman and his daughter pull a boy like a fish from the sea. in development; premiere: 2021
