bio


   

 

Freedom Cycles

There’s wind, but only
breath escapes the doldrums.

Crafted my pinwheel
turbines from basket-
weaving right hands strewn
together; tools to the aphids,
they sap the enamel and
know God’s sickle well,
how he revolves the weed,
he resembles morning brume,
comes ‘round like a roller chain
unhinged by its mainstays.

Atrium

Narrowed halls
centipoise, not much
a choice, as it is
indispensable;
constricting
these widowed spires,
silken from webs
of pillow attire.
