Selected Work
all spring you sing
in my backyard―and I don’t 
even know your name
deer in dry winter
blending into bark
only their eyes move
bullfrogs blink
a drunken poet
falls into their pond
long dark hair
short black dress
I miss my stop
my pillow still has
your hair’s scent— the fog and I
dream of your nearness
red flags in the fog
worn down little wooden boats
hauling in their nets
