'DY(e)ING with coffee' as part of COMMODITY CAFÉ with Vera Anttila

sh sh 
linger around the busyness-as-usual
where does the work of art end and life begin?

burning, fire, 
soaked in caffeinated perspectives,
grounding, grinding, weaving visions 

water, fire, heatwaves boiling over
steaming, roasting, ingesting matter

digesting thoughts on…death, burning and the gift
