Falling Bricks & Cinder Blocks
It’s weird how people talk to me,
Even my GYN, busy putting on his gloves,
We don’t need nurses in the room:
I caution him to buy bananas green and firm
I like my doctor a lot because he reads
He’s not afraid to dip his hands in deep red blood;

My poems have been published in The Writer’s Journal, PKA Advocate, Nomad’s Choir and many others. They are also included in two anthologies- Love Notes (Vagabondage Press) and Ekphrastia Gone Wild (Ain’t Got No Press). I have written off and on for a number of years. I am hoping to publish two books of poetry in the near future.
