Fast Blinker

“I’m a fast blinker.
Likely not the fastest you’ll ever see.
But my eyelids have done their time
of shutting darkness out.”


Snowshoes and Inkwells

“I know a few things- that I never liked the winter,

It was always something to survive. 

And words stained with chagrin and tonic,

I’d have thought those snowshoes foolish to buy.”

Fresh Starts:

I wanted a big funeral.

I wanted to be remembered by thousands.

I wanted a full plate of many talents.

I have done well to make that so,

Becoming something with the breadth of an ocean

With the depth of a river creek.

It’s not what I bargained two decades for.
