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.

Truth of the Matter

Truth of the Matter

Did you ever feel 
with all the
sludge pouring in
that your veil might be

just a little too thin?

Our sensitivity!
the very quality
by which
we intuit our conduit  

is such a liability to bear 
this pain of knowing
so intimately the 
vast cycle we swim, 
inexplicably attracted 
yet 
polarized
driven to synthesize!
contentedly consumed

by virtue of you 
assure me
we are two, essentially 
dyed in the wool
our bond 
thick & smug; whereas

thinly veiled?

Shall be our delight!
in what 
we hold dear,
lovely molecules contained.
