Selected Work
desert sunrise
smell of rain outlives
the rain
jazz cafe bill the odd signature of rain
desert ruins . . .
hawk's feather chasing 
a dust devil
desert gas station― 
a driver and a hitcher 
share prayer rug
night airport 
a busker comes back 
to the root note
Tzeva Adom the glow of ceiling stars
