From “The Paper Cafe” installation by Ochiai Aki Leonor – Local Edition Makati, December 2016 (Installation on display till 13 January 2017)

white spaces
in our
minds:
the blank
pages
upon which
thoughts
are scribbled
are scrawled
are sketched;
canvases
to splash
upon.

shades of
gray
shadows neither
black
nor white
gathering
like stormclouds
in our
heads;
and we
wander
through the
mists
in our
minds
as we
try
to take
stock
to seek
order
to find
meaning
in the
whirling
swirling
twirling
maelstrom
within
ourselves.
