Anne (for Anne Morrow Lindbergh)
A brief moment from Anne Morrow Lindbergh's autobiographical "War Within and Without."
The text for my in-progress animated film: a short, gothic poem full of imagery and symbolism.
A poem based on an old black and white photo of myself as a child.
A Hymn to Roget
A poem denouncing dictionary-thesauri and praising Roget's original conception!
The Magician After Hours
A young magician with an extraordinary zest.
The Man in the Suit
A man I saw walking along the street: a unique experience!
A sketch of an old friend and his cat.
This is a nightmare that lingered. I woke up and said, "This is a sestina!" It took three years to tame the vision into this rigid, obsessive verse form.
This poem found its own highly-structured, obsessive form to express an encounter with the intimidatingly immaculate.
Sleep Gently, Now
A somewhat irreverent memorial for an unusual teacher in touch with the ironies inherent in the bleaker aspects of existence.
Through Shining Glass, a poem cycle containing:
A young café habitué plays the Goddess of Ennui.
