Selected Work
mending a loose thread
in the bright blue jumper
you cannot wear now
aquarium dawn
with instant breakfast
counterfeit world
pet shop paw print
on the glass
of an empty cage
bootprint rain
your tiny tread
embossed on mine
we slump in unison
on the rock-a-bye bus
i don’t remember
a time before
i knew about death
