excerpts from some of my published poems and essays,

and where to find them


from Little Circe

"Even at three, she knew

the days were hers,

the tides came in,

the dune-grass curled

at her command..."

Poetry East, no. 61

from I'm curious

"... Yesterday, heedless as a toddler

and as easily bored,

and Scotland (river), India (rooftops),

and watched an old woman

hanging up wet clothes in China..."


"Fasting was a new idea to me; it sounded mysterious and powerful—a bloodless sacrifice."
 from Fasting: a Diptych
"I started dissociating more and differently after Papi died. Sometimes at the piano, I floated up to the ceiling and watched myself play..."
 from Salvaging Parts
