Selected Work
rural sky—
what other worlds
have a Beethoven?
the ant returns
after being flicked . . .
autumn loneliness
false spring
the homeless man’s
gold teeth
morning chill—
I move to her side
of the argument
Death Valley:
a man who’s never been there
tells me all about it
holding a bite
through the prayer
