Selected Work
 
start of spring…
the sky cracked
on the pond ice
 
bent cypress 
its wooden spine pressed by 
a humpback of snow
 
 
 
dry stone wall
a young lizard gathers
the sunrays
 
wartime salvo
with badges decorated
of the dead crew
 
 
 
these two frogs  
compete croaking 
deep into the night
 
an empty table
between the dates awaiting
the retirement check
