Selected Work
 
moments after
her final breath
a fine rain
 
steel city sunset
looming on the horizon
anvils
 
 
 
lanes heavy
with wild chervil
spring thunder
 
snow moon
the silence between
the vixen's cries
 
 
 
jazz radio
the tumbling circles
of the fancier's pigeons
 
in
an old car
an old man and
an old dog
