Listening to her gone one heart beat,
one sigh, at a time. Enough despair
that mute stone itself sends me messages.
My poems and short fiction have appeared in various print and online journals including: Monkeybicycle, Otoliths, Tattoo Highway, Word Riot, Foliate Oak, and qarrtsiluni, among others (including Shot Glass Journal #7). My wife and I live on a small farm in Yamhill, OR, raising a menagerie of animals including two whippets, a manx barn cat (who doesn't care for whippets), two Bourbon Red turkeys (King Strut and Nefra-Turkey), and an alpaca named Machu-Picchu.
