Windsor, Ontario

Bodies in Orbit

It’s a curiosity – to see the back side of suburban life.

Where familiarity ends and adventure begins.


                   A test of one’s spirit:

     glaring out the kitchen window and

                                                       into a passing railcar.

Speeding along to God knows where while one remains stationary.


Vibrating all-round the house is

               the constant hum on the everyday life.

While washing dishes, putting away groceries,

               seeing mystery speed by at 150 mph.
