"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.

Roly Poly

Roly Poly

Roly poly in a jar
do you know how rare you are
inside with saran on top
I’ll prick some holes—
pop, pop, pop
You can ball up, you can crawl
or hide inside your armored ball
Safe inside this jar you’ll be
a stick to be your climbing tree
we will hide here on the floor
behind white rooms with raised doors
when we see her floating hand
we will hide our face again
