Stay, she said.

Don't go.
Everybody goes.
Why don't you not go?
Stay.

I referenced a photo by @narcissusholmes for this work. Love how the position of the glasses breaks up the face so interestingly. Here's a little poem I penned about the disappointments we manage, real and imagined:

SHOOT
He said he'd come.
To paint.
To rosé.To shoot.
To walk the pups.
But he never came.
So I roséd, painted,
and I didn't walk the pups.
Shoot.
He never came.

Say Something


Say something, I'm giving up on you.
I'll be the one, if you want me to.
Anywhere I would've followed you.
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

And I am feeling so small.
It was over my head
I know nothing at all.

Jenny Doh
And I will stumble and fall.
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you.
Anywhere I would've followed you.
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

Jenny Doh2And I will swallow my pride.
You're the one that I love
And I'm saying goodbye.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you.
And anywhere I would've followed you. Oh-oh-oh-oh
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
Say something...

She swallowed the past whole


진미 became Jenny
서울 became Seoul
as she swallowed the past whole.

Jenny Dohleft-handed became right-handed
faith became formula
as she swallowed the past whole

Jenny Doh 2mother became stranger
brother became ashes
as the whole past swelled deep inside her

Jenny Doh 3the past became present
as light moved from left and right
and the past could no longer remain whole

We've Still Got Time


The Boat.
Deadicated to Jinil

The boat.
My brother who must have felt he was sinking.
The boat.
My memory of him that I fight to hold onto.

Jenny Doh

The boat. The plane. The boat. The plane.
The vessel that our family boarded together.
The boat.
The vessel that our family boarded to carry him back.
Brilliant and tortured brother of mine.

Jenny Doh 3The boat.
That didn't know.
That we still had time.

IMG_4712Falling Slowly
by Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova

I don't know you but I want you all the more for that
Words fall through me and always fool me and I can't react
And games that never amount to more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly eyes that know me and I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me and I'm painted black
You have suffered enough and warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had the choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing along

You will hear thunder


Jenny DohYou will hear thunder and remember me and think: she wanted storms
The rim of the sky will be the color of hard crimson
And your heart as it was then
will be on fire.

ANNA AKHMATOVA

Falling Slowly


Falling Slowly
by Kris Allen

I don't know you but I want you all the more for that
Words fall through me and always fool me and I can't react
And games that never amount to more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly eyes that know me and I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me and I'm painted black
You have suffered enough and warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had the choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing along

I Have No Life But This


Photo-41
I have no Life but this -
To lead it here -
Nor any Death - but lest
Dispelled from there -


Photo-42
Nor tie to Earths to come -
Not Action new -
Except through this extent -
The Realm of you -

{Emily Dickinson}
