Selected Work
abandoned schoolhouse
the overgrown grass
points away
shade garden
a Dickinson poem	
etched on a log
tree drifting
downstream to the mill
I open her letter
her eyes
when I take her side  . . . 
flies in the kitchen
he brings up
past boyfriends
strip club parking lot
puddles not reflecting
the true me
