Selected Work
morning after 
the creak 
of an empty swing
my grandfather’s face
we try to read
between the lines
new home
we unpack
our old habits
visiting home
the daughter I find
in mom's eyes
everyday struggles
the weight of a crumb
on an ant’s back
day moon 
I point out my flaws 
in other people
