Selected Work
 
broken easel—
the front yard blue
with wildflowers
 
scattering at sea . . .
the great blue heron
glides through him
 
 
 
tiny headstone—
a pinwheel turns
the wind
 
a catfish twitches
at the end of the line—
fading daylight
 
 
 
gangsta rap echoes
through the bayou . . .
moonlight mist
 
veterans day parade—
the homeless man stands
on a different corner
