Selected Work
midday heat 
     the water song 
                 of magpies
morning chill ― a scorpion salutes the sun
outliving the town
the gravestones at Keilli 
limestone ruins 
seasoning the hillside 
pepper trees
eating twilight shadows in the koi pond 
two men argue 
                     about the burqa ban― 
she feeds the blackbirds
