Selected Work
 
even with
    my eyes closed
        the white lily
 
psychward
moonlight
climbs the walls
 
 
 
from reed to reed
a blackbird follows
                              its song
 
apples in bud
a white lie
about her complexion
 
 
 
dawn breeze
leaf shadows
on her freckles
 
edge of the reeds
a rattlesnake pair
tails whispering
