poems & stories of

Eugene Daze

    The artist lived in Eugene, Oregon, for two years while Miyuki worked on her graduate music degree. They had no money, lived in a run-down rooming house, and walked up and down super market aisles reading labels for their Friday night entertainment.
    Oregon is at once uplifting in its lush naturalness and, when it rains for days and days, unbearably depressing. The writing reflects this dichotomy.
