Selected Work
wearing Dad's jeans
reminds me of how
his genes wear me
to capture a natural look
the camera flashes
sixty times
sunlight through blinds
he no longer hides
the other woman
doctor's office
my blood pressure was better
tapping out biography
on old typewriter
the "I" sticks
blind woman
her memories of autumn
turn to gray
