Pioneers Without Frontiers
When I was a kid on the bus,
I looked at all that surrounded us,
out the window I always gazed
seeing old fields, half-trees, half-hay,
beyond them rose a forest wall,
maples and pines, stately and tall,
past that rose a line of low hills,
I...Read More

Upstate Blues
It can be kind of depressing,
living in upstate New York,
because of that damn city,
that grand ol’ attention whore,
I cannot go anywhere
without having to explain
that I don’t live in a borough,

without a...Read More

the enjoyment
on his deathbed
he stares up at the ceiling---
a stale, supposedly calming
light blue, basks down upon
his now disease ridden body &

Adirondacks Ode
Climb high these mountains
And meet cliffs of history
Snug against the moon

Tongue lark the dark lakes
Water births of memory
Ego ice thin...Read More
