"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.

House on a cliff

Outside the house there is
a deep ravine, a chasm
of loss
The roof salutes the sky
with her A to the gray
the windows reveal
only darkness within
the house perches
on her skyway of logs
thickly laid
covered in
protected from the spray
over the abyss
She is waterproof
She is impenetrable
She is unreachable

Will she stand?
