"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.

Walking Under Words

What is the sound of
of an oar after it dips in water?
Do you hear it?
The sound of fruit
after it falls from a tree?
Listen.
What is the sound of a bird
after it has flown away?
What about the sound
after the rain?
What do you hear just as
the TV is turned off,
or the last round of
a loud argument upstairs--
or the last breath
of a haggard embrace.

What do you hear?
