"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.

Not by Boat

Grace is not the gentle drip
after a summer rain,
but gasp of breath
from the nearly
drowned.
Grace brought us
to the place we dreamt
by desolation, not by destiny
by drowning, not by boat.
