Selected Work
 
the hawk also waiting
for shadows —
Groundhog Day
 
first day of school
his backpack
filled with summer
 
 
 
spring cleaning—
moving the dust
from one season to another
 
Halloween party—
after a few drinks
the masks come off
 
 
 
street corner memorial—
my four-year-old
asks for the balloon
 
the coldness
of my pocket change—
cardboard shelter
