Dissonance is a small visual project in which I revisit my old published poems and combine them with photographs I’ve scavenged across the years, but especially my time in Vancouver. The title, and credo, for the project comes from the insistence upon dissonance in theme or form of the poem imposed onto the visual image. If the photograph and the poem “don’t really go together”, it’s exactly the point. The third work (of seven), “Reflux” is up on the home page. All text and image copyrights belong to me.

The first piece, “Time Traveling Preserves”, text first published in Reading Hour in 2011


The second piece, “Dead Saffron” was first published in Helter Skelter in 2014.
