Volume of selected poems.





Sample Excerpt:



Chain Reaction


The sky is like flint;

Stars bulge in their sockets;

Down ever road Winter

Has lined it pockets


With snow; ice eyes

Glint at their reflections.

A robin cries

In notes of circumspection,


Shattering the silence

Into a thousand pieces

Of crystal. The violence

Ensuing releases


A chain-reaction—snow

Tumbling from trees,

A hint of movement now—
