some recent poems:

barn musics   ~for Maurice Manning~

as blind
as hair
yeah that’s
your father
into baiting
by a red
a gaslit


starless musics

I drop
down the back
of my brother’s
a wasp
and for years
he has
dry skin.

there are words
our mother said
that we’ve used
to protect her. this day

(to that)
means gather
eggs. sleep

is your shepherd’s


devoured musics

in dream
what you can
of heaven
