It came in the form of a really odd call
My smart phone rang and answered itself
And began a conversation with a TV...Read More

Finding Me
I’m from toy cars and mismatched Barbie shoes.
I’m from bike races down the one road where no unpadded limb was safe.
I’m from a Sunday carpool and Tom Thumb slushies in Florala.
I’m from the twang of Conway Twitty,
the screams of Aerosmith...Read More

And so, the homeless have a stake

Kicking dust up as he went
His lips all puckered, whistling a tune

Look at Me
I am 
A curious seahorse
Of copper and evergreen
Skittering past
Gaping jaws
Of a killer whale

An angry crawdad
Clicking my 
Castanet claws
At sandaled toes 
Gliding by

A scrambled message
On a cellular phone
With whirs and clicks
Baffling the receiver
But concealing an SOS

To look into my 
Stained glass...Read More
