thorn in the side of the rose

what some women wear in their bones

in these still vital moments

on the day after ...


in the august before sputnik orbits its great metallic eye

over the earth

the griot brings us the blues and lifts us into the realm

of jazz

a wound's deeper kiss

moving between worlds

the empty nest



the primary loss

step by step


meager wishes

a room full of light

if heaven is here ...

going to the well



apple picking


the light arrives at an oblique angle

necessary kindling


papa's maybe

thirty-five and a half weeks

the whipping


making the grade



uneven tide

on the fire trail.
