"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.

Back of the Wind

Oh, it's you.
You're back again.
Busting through for a
day or two, knocking
down branches
on my door, making
cicada skins rattle
on the fence, poking
under things that ain't
your business.  Sure,
I liked you last year.
So invigorating, so
fresh.  Whatever.
You can just go back
where you came from.
I know who's right
behind your back.
Get on out of here
y'old wind--
and don't y'ever
come back.
