My stories


The Retreat

"The stray corpse of a snowman sinks into the mud. The rain has stolen his face and a testimony melts in his mouth"

The Obligatory Snow Poem

I have spent the afternoon in 1961, and out on the quad I think I witness Adolf Eichmann building a snowman.

Gold cherry


I dreamt about my uncle's death last night. Not about my uncle. He was already dead when the dream started.


I sit in the trees that are made from amber glass, making notes, and think of another tree growing in Jerusalem for those who invented God.
