This was my third published chapbook.
Here is a sample poem from the collection:
READYING THE RAG
Come to think of it, we're not
lost, said the dust, having returned
home to the coffee table, cresting
now on that morning's water rings,
squatting on the broad banks
of the Big Book of Rivers & Streams
and in the (dust)bowl of hand-
painted apples and pears. Tribes
of other grime loitered in the air,
unsure of where to come to rest,
noticing the woman of the house
with her cleaning rag and spray can
of Pledge--O vision of the apocalypse!
Then the phone rang, and she began
to laugh in her mad, hysterical
way, pure henchwoman, laughing
and listening, readying the rag,
waiting for all the dust to settle.
