cherry blossoms bloom,
province breaks out in flame

time goes by but
not in the way you remember

heading south for a dip in a pool,
dinner in our best dress,
trip to the zoo

garden sowed and sleepy still
but soon it all grows like
i have in time’s jagged patterns,
it will under blankets of ash


forgive my absence!  i’ve taken to submitting, writing a chapbook and posting poems on my website which means less content here (although i’m looking to turn that around soon).  here are a couple  recent poems:

inaugural issue of card alpha:

issue 9 of vagabond city:

mid-week blues

let’s take
a moment to desaturate this, don’t
let it crawl across your
flickering eyelids, traipse
through your successes

leave it to us to find
wonder in shadows, carefully
travelling backward through
time and into closetspace

robotics of rolling coin,
thursday morning and
the weeks go by
so much faster
as i get older

vase full of willows, outside
the sun shines like it
just remembered how and

everyone has air in their tires,
smiles at strangers,
walks  with a purpose
