"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.

Five pointed stars blossom,
three snakes of seeds file through
one flower floats mid penny slice
Do you want a pickle that bites you back?
Bumps, barbs, spread apart
leaves with bristles,
and stems with spikes
Are you caught in a pickle--preserved
Whether you're pricked
depends on what direction you
rub them from
Slices stack up splashed, salted, brined
