The Lydia Davis Project: The House Plans

(based on Lydia Davis’ short story ‘The House Plans’)

Naked in this land
My soul pursues
Value in all things.

Such is the life I lead
As I struggle with
Quiet dignity.

Often wishing
I could return
To my long abandoned past
For no reason less than fear.

The Lydia Davis Project: The Letter

(based on Lydia Davis’ short story ‘The Letter’)

Paper memories stream thoughts
So sweet, so tragic.
You cannot deny their power,
These utter works of magic.

A lack of taste for lips and
no chance of smell for nose.
It seems he sent a poem because
He couldn’t be fucked with prose.
