"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.

This is the way

Sweep the floor, sweep the floor
This is the way we sleep the floor
every, every day...

This is the way I write a poem,
write a poem, write a poem
this is the way I write a poem,
every, every day.

Stringing words,
cutting, shifting,
finding, sifting
reaching, choking
braving, coaxing

typing, revising,
then I'm done...

I press, post,

and breathe

alone.
