"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.

I had a lemon tree

I had a lemon tree 
that would not grow lemons,
so I kicked it, and screamed at it,
threw obscenities at it’s small trunk. 
I waited.
I watched the tree grow cut glass pitchers 
of pure lemonade—
engraved into each glass
was my sour expression.
