Moments

Moments


how does a wave
mimic
the uselessness
of minutes

why does a wave
open
a trap door
to flee the tyranny of time



Dom Gabrielli studied literature at Edinburgh University and prepared for his doctorate in Paris and New York. In Paris, Gabrielli’s passion for French literature and thought led him to begin writing, translating, and teaching. He translated widely including published works by Bataille,  Leiris and Jabes. In the early 1990’s, he left the academic world to travel and devote himself to writing, whilst pursuing various business ventures. He has published two books to date. The Eyes of a Man, his first book of poetry, and The Parallel Body, which earned considerable praise. Both books were published by Ziggurat Books International. Gabrielli currently travels extensively.
