Exciting news!

My FITNESS FOR POETS weekly poem has become
a MONTHLY letter as I shift focus to my first book– a magical realism memoir in verse about dancing away those early Art school days.

Homing Device

Homing Device

If you expect to find
everything
: still there
: untouched &
: just as it always was

you might begin to feel
a little bit
homesick
even though
you’re sitting right there
in the kitchen
catching up
with your teenage
self

So grown!
So confident!
So bold!
you were
when you were the Future

and now that you
ARE

Keeping your promise?

No lies! that kid already knows
where you are in life/always
behind you still believing
in your miracle,

and best of all?
Any time you
begin to feel a little
bit

Homesick?

Ha!
You know where they live.
Head back now!
and 
tell them
that you did.
