"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.

One low

One long high note
one low

Mom's whistling for me,

Poll--ly

My name, like Chinese,
is tonal.  Two notes--

One long high note
one low

Black Capped Chickadee
he makes the same call

One long high note
one low

Mom--my

He whistles from
a slender tree

One long high note
one low

Chickadee
stop calling me

Mom--my

coos my son
through a screen

One long high note
one low
