Selected Work
empty winter nest—
discovering a new drip
in an old faucet
swell’s cusp—
i stand on top
of rain
autumn’s palette—
a flash
of crow’s wing blue
teetering on the edge
of womanhood -
six-inch heels
long winter day
entertaining ghosts
   where to sit?
removing sandals
i breathe deep
the horse’s mane
