Selected Work
when you sleep
your thoughts are green
the strange call of dawn
rain dripping from a light bulb a car backfires
fork tines not the actual sensation 
the breakfast special missing a few letters not quite spring
Carried from the capsule
The Chinese Astronauts
Sit in blue fold-out chairs
hundreds of brand names for less I swerve to avoid a black sock
