Selected Work
side glance . . .
a cat's shadow stalks
my shadow 
toy bone . . .
my golden retriever
fetches dusk
bending forward
withered leaves arch―
winter yoga
closed door
the angry conversation
of sparrows outside
ghost of winter
sited behind the sliding door
lunar throne
spring drive
towards green moon
highway hypnotism . . .
