The Ethics of Spring: Photoshow


Privacy Issues

I can watch
the bluebirds.
They don't mind.
They have more
secrets than I can
ever find. I can
watch the
mystical butterflies
in their brief
but dramatic days.
The tiny insects
not caring about danger.
I can watch them.

A Father's Day Panegyric to a Lamp

I took
Tiffany into my man cave,
and she
gave me the hand
of a woman.
Thank you Clara
for inventing
this touch of motherhood
and fantasy.
I took her roughly
into my man cave
and pushed my beer brand
through her colors.
I replaced her
butterflies with
emblems of Jets
and Rangers.
I broke her
and, wounded,
she sang.

A Brief Conversation

drawled at me
like a child
and I knew the
language of the
animals was
my language.
When I opened the
back door to let her out,
she gave me a quick yip.
We spoke.
I received her thanks.

Story in Cyclamens and Swords

Cyclamens and Swords Publishing  June  2015 Newsletter

For our current issue, please see


My brow can be
as a lash
to make my confession prayers
pay. I have the
muscles in my face
to squeeze the pain
out of bone and nerve
when I recite
I'm sorry. I see your face.
I'm sorry.

Spring in the China Closet

The entire Spring
fit on two shelves
of the cabinet.
This is the way
I like my Spring,
inspiring but tame.
I watched it glow
since there was no
sun to obscure it.
