My stories


The imperative (Poetry Monthly)

revisit a dream and check on progress

Noisy silence

Silence put lips to the house...
Gold cherry

Karelia (Poetry Monthly)

Time lingers in the corners of such bars from the White Sea to the Gulf of Finland...

Grave news

Words trickled down my wrist, followed blue veins...

All change

Time started one billionth of a station clock's tick from where you looked.

"............................bashful as hell, you were,
as you undressed"

just perfecty expresses that age.

I was really moved by this section in particular and the way the words pinned and needles and stolen and normal work together:

The reference to prints

Posted on Thu, 06 Aug 2015

The reference to prints washed away can be so significant. The bare footprint on a wet beach is an ephemeral human mark - we make an impression, but it is quickly erased.

Love the cardi, and mice in the  hives. Redolent of our disappearing human space.  I can picture it all.
