why write?

I have to write what I hear in my head, what I dream in my sleep, what my bones ache to express.

My poems tell stories of strength, love, regret, disobedience, loss, hope, redemption, and whatever whispers to you.

look for my laugh


When Rose’s Meat Market & Sweet Shop still held hands in Durham, “look for my laugh” was written.  I revised it recently; here are a few lines:

 

I drive to Morgan’s Imports near Rose’s Sweets & Meats

or Meats & Sweets

 

I need a sympathy card

wish I could pair that verse with this cover

 

I drop my multiple choices

spy a lost card corner beneath the cabinet

 

rescue, read

heads turn

look at me when I laugh out loud
