"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.

roadkill

We saw a vulture today
in the neighborhood
it came to say hi
borrow a cup of sugar
scavenge some dried
roadkill
He was handsome
for a vulture

there are little lizard
hands all over the living room
carpet that the dog
chewed from a toy

and I wonder
if when all that is dead
and dismembered is
removed from my heart

it might grow again
So vultures aren't
a bad thing then
