Selected Work
Neon light
like a carpet
on Ghost Month waters
Outside the binary lecture    green language
Dropping everything
to run with the dogs
to be human again
A darkness so deep
I am surrounded
by gold beetles
At the door
of the government center
I tuck in my thoughts
My words
in her ears
like ice fishing
