You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.

morning sneeze the guitar in the corner resonates
with a flourish the waitress leaves behind rearranged smears
winter commute my hand finds a warm spot on the handrail
frozen laundry I bend her skirt over my arm
summer’s end the quickening of hammers towards dusk
thunder my woodshavings roll along the veranda
