three so1oku by Alan Summers

silver bullet(s) where wolf whither goest thou?



Peter Doig’s moon a flamenco of swords flashing streetlights



Hopper diners the fading starlight short orders gather momentum



Alan Summers lives with sparrows. He also spends time sampling coffee in hotel lounges while working on a theory that will disprove his place on Planet A but might allow access to Planet B. By chance Alan is co-founder of Call of the Page with Karen Hoy.
