Excerpt: Weathered Fragments, Weathered Souls

Excerpt from “The Fragments You Carry”

The box remains to pick up
the rest of your things:
the permanent markers,
the bottle of Tylenol,
the loose change,
the card from a friend wishing you a safe journey,
the receipt from your favorite pho restaurant
and the cheap vodka you had last night.

Excerpt – Medusa – The Lost Daugher

From “Eternal Sacrifice”

Truths presented cloaked in one’s omission
rarely remain hazy, but a puzzle
for the recipient to unlock, as
trust for the bearer recedes, clarity
in fragments will always surface in time.

Excerpt from Medusa – The Lost Daughter

From “Love Story”

True love is felt not in the rush of warmth,
but in the coldness of sorrow, fear of
losing love, that empty heart no one wants.

Excerpt, Medusa – The Lost Daughter

Excerpt #1 from my forthcoming book, Medusa – The Lost Daughter.

From “The Gorgon Awaits Her Fate”

Fate binds goddess and monster like a knot
of twine woven tight, restricted, hard to
remove, without fraying the core. A king’s
fate cannot be changed without a gift of
blood given at the altar of those gods
he angered with his pride.
