"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2017 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw or get my first book and see how the work evolves with new books rolling out next year.

How many times a robin

How many times does a robin
dive his beak into the dirt
in faith a worm is there?
Does he trust the rain's
convincing drip to drive them,
or does he trust the worm
to do his job and breathe?
