Eleanor on 72nd Street

Poem

We were playing chess
On a dry stone table.

She behind us, tall white elegant
A souvenir of heart on 72nd street.


Epiphany | In the Know | Mapping

Poem

Why smoke gauloises in the rainforest
After the gotcha X Ray: frayed lung tissue,
Denuded woods, siamese disasters?
