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.

Love Goes Live

Love Goes Live

I thought it 
might be a good time 
for an 
early Valentine

with every intention 
of writing to
you

a vermillion glazed tartlet
whipped frothy, laced tightly
well-oiled crème de pouf
toasting our mutual passion! 

when the school nurse 
called to announce–

a vowel 
had been swapped!

and my afternoon would 
be spent intent  
on reviewing with the 
pediatrician

potential symptoms 
regarding what to 
do

since we’re not dead 
YET

and as it 
happens

Life insists we 
live 

every aspect of 
our well-laid plans 
standing up to 
Chance 
\ foiled or thwarted?

Weave it through! 

& ooh! 
tell your 
Story 

all the more True.
