Ellis Island is a book of changes. This text exists in two very different modes—one that is stable and one that is endlessly changing. Like Ellis Island, it belongs at the same time to the City and the Sea.

Belonging to the City, Ellis Island is a poem of 624 sonnets, in a determined and unchangeable order. You can read this book on paper or, soon, on this site.

Belonging to the Sea, Ellis Island is an inconceivably large number of random sonnets. You can generate one or more right here on this site.
