Important Announcement

The Depot Gallery and office will be closed until at least the end of May, 2020. We will reassess at that time. Phone messages will be checked regularly and calls returned. We do this out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health of our community.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.


used to be
a wet knot   Bones
had a choice--
get sucked in or
run   Now it has
unleashed itself
through my skin
its little tears
of joy
through my bones
