"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.

Barbie and Ken drive away in their shoebox (1999)

Childhood memory exercises can turn out anyway they want...

The fairies are happy for their queen,
they fly in aerial sprees.
Yarn looped dresses are their fashion friends,
cardboard castles are the newest trend
With Kleenex curtains waving in the breeze,
Barbie's proud of her new draperies.
Barbie and Ken ride away
in their new shoe box,
goodbye to the fairies as they speed past
over an olive carpet of grass
into the darkness of the clothes closet forest.
