"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.

Cicada


Wind (1999)

A gail throws me across
muddy grass
I run
feeling the wind
blow away
my hard exterior.

Set free
from a binding shell
hard amber cracks
and blows away

leaving my
soft flesh
new to
the wind.
