Selected Work
alone, preparing
for the long walk to nowhere.
no where. no where. rest.
alone at death’s door
delaying the decaying ...
ashes ‘neath the trees
lost in mist and maze
ghost of Tsali in the corn
river water runs
this day weighs heavy
a stone yoke around my neck
winter just begun
near the tree top
dangling globe twinkles
cat olympics
