Percy in the Snow

January 31, 2014

Surprised foot prints

tiptoe in the snow

white on white


January 30, 2014

Riveted to the kitchen window

we wait in silence

while the snow drifts

Snow Mass

January 30, 2014

Chickadees drink from the cup

black caps contrast with snow

they eat seeds from a silver paten one wafer at a time

Snowed in at Cowboy’s

January 29, 2014

Hunkered down under covers piled high like the snow

I wait it out

in Cowboy’s arms.


January 26, 2014

Long legs perfect for riding

tattooed hands, barbed wire posts

biker friend, lover of four-legged creatures.


January 25, 2014

Like Walker, Shelley, and Sledge

you walk the ledge, narrow, high

like poetry, narrative, song.

A Democratic Geography

January 22, 2014

Topo lines surround us

traverse our limbs, bind us

we are trapped in our own map



January 22, 2014

Daffodil leaves part

mud like seas farmers plow

yellow green power

Black Widow

January 21, 2014

crouched in black leather

biker chick waits

with hourglass eyes


January 20, 2014

light lengthens

while ice cracks

hoarfrost flowers

like Queenanne’s Lace

lake mirrors a mean sky

wolves howl in winter woods

gray, gray
