The New York Optimist
Artist Charlie Roberts

Aural Storm
This work is about being alone in the world and alone in my body.
What I have is time inside my skin;
The passive digital lens records this time alone—
Alone in wonder.
Through this open eye, I attempt to see myself in clarity beyond judgment.
These actions, once recorded, become digital forever;
I attempt to remember what it is to never forget.
Empty spaces become filled with gestures:
I try to hold my life in my arms, feel it next to my skin.
It breathes back.
Through breathing, my presence becomes visible.
This embrace acknowledges the struggle
To hold this life
Closer,
Closer still...

                   (Escape)

Into the glowing white of the blank behind these words,

I erase myself into the invisible.
