Selected Work
 
farewell hike—
windswept emptiness
of Haleakala
 
haiku dad—
I help my daughter trim
her college essay
 
 
 
sunrise at the lodge—
white water rafters pick
at their scrambled eggs
 
fenced garden
a deer nudges against 
the rusted latch
 
 
 
moonless night—
my reclusive neighbor
points out Jupiter
 
arrhythmia the unraveling of the republic
