Caddle (ObservationwaterI) was selected for MSUL’s themed call for work about Water, in coordination with the MSU Broad Art Museum’s fall 2023 exhibition, Flint is Family in Three Acts, featuring the photography of Latoya Ruby Frazier.

Say there are birds on the sandbar in the river.
Say they will take flight.
They have taken their wings from the coat rack.
In the ditch beside the county road there is water.
In the water leaves are wet hands reaching to be lifted.
A tree is folded in a book.
Its branches like pages that can be turned down at the corner 
you want to find again.
