Selected Work
Easter lily
gracefully passing by
the barcode scanner
early autumn
the little girl next door
turns forty today
distant lightning
followed by the sound
of a cricket
same tired face
between the curtains
full moon
where the school bus comes from
the edge of the winter night
turns yellow
on the way from work—
one by one, the streetlights
go out
