Selected Work
 
storm clouds—
the deep red of the rose
in his tattoo
 
moss
softens the wings
of stone angels
 
 
 
a vine
twists around itself
summer night alone
 
autumn term
a gold sequin
on the library stairs
 
 
 
midday heat
a doll hung up to dry
by its hair
 
also emerging
from the darkness—
winter trees
