Selected Work
deeper than the 
hoot of snowy owls
winter solitude
lawyer’s notice
her side of the bed
long unruffled
movie date
her hand meets his
in spiced popcorn
curvy barmaid
asking her number 
with a straight face
from the nostril
of the Buddha 
a line of ants
taro leaf
mountain waltzes
in a droplet
