in bedding grounds where whitetails lope,
by ledges hidden from our eyes,
a quirky outcropping does lie.
Breaking a broadleaf canopy,
the scree-slope of an old quarry,
long ago Dibble cut blue-stone,
must be a century ago,
slab-sheets cut out with sweat...Read More

Like flying bottle openers,
And peeling back a tin can roof
Of a school bus
Loaded with 40 children,
Whose shoulders are...Read More
