Selected Work
loose change . . .
spray of violets behind
bulletproof glass
cool cloudy morning
dance recital tutu
lies in a heap
hiking up my skirt
I climb the ladder to get
his gardening book
Monday morning
not quite awake
not quite spring
last year’s crumbs
and pencil shavings
fall from the backpack
first snowfall
the bride’s train drifts down
the spiral staircase
