Selected Poems

Aqui Vive

Glass clouds
birch brace

sparrow shot

into a new world
I bring familiar poverty

 

 

Least Wind

         1

in least wind
yarrow stalks
dippin sticks
for ages a rain
O drum fog

         2

era is ova
drew the tea clear
air then air
two scale trees and wet hair
lick your face
