Selected Work
 
summer's                    together
            back steps
                          heat 
                                lightning
 
after she leaves
tea stains
on the sympathy card
 
 
 
city of old stones
men in the rain
roasting chestnuts
 
outside the bus
inside the rain
 
 
 
this familiar church
some ancient jasper whispers
in a foreign tongue
 
Tuesday Tuesday Tuesday
Tuesday she died Tuesday
Tuesday Tuesday Tuesday
