Publications

My poetry has been published by Dark Gothic Resurrected, Thomas Novosel Press, and elsewhere.

Here are two short poems I wrote in 2016.

“Most Beautiful Words”

Word around the pediatric unit
Is that my precious son
Goes home today.
Five of the most beautiful
Words I know:
My son
Goes home
Today.

 

“Last Dinner for Two”
The moon on the water, the stars in the sky,
How they shined while we dined by the shore.
The pine needles dance in the wind. You and I
Never dance in the wind anymore.
Oh my dove, how our love’s shadow grows.
Oh my dove, why’d I wait?
Oh my dove, I say, Hope. You say, No.
Oh my dove, it’s too late.
Now sky falls upon us, the earth turns to ash
And the air cooks our lungs with each breath.
The pine needles bake, and the lake turns to glass,
But I dance by the shore till my death.
Oh my dove, how our love’s shadow grows.
Oh my dove, why’d I wait?
Oh my dove, I say, Hope. You say, No.
Oh my dove, it’s too late.
[The speaker’s voice is temporarily drowned out by fire noises.]
Oh my dove, how our love’s shadow grows.
Oh my dove, why’d I wait?
Oh my dove, I say, Hope. You say, No.
Oh my dove, it’s too late.
