to commemorate the release of my collection ‘FROM MY FRONT STEPS‘ on June 5,

here’s an except from my first collection ‘A DISTILLED SPIRIT.’

 

the tree

 

her face was riddled.

 

dug into her cheek

an empty heart

like lovers carve into a tree.

 

there were no initials

no dates

just old skin

 

rough and crumbly like bark.

 

she stood alone

bowed

 

an ancient tree in the forest

awaiting a fall

no one would ever hear.

 

listen to this poem

 

FROM MY FRONT STEPSRELEASE DATE JUNE 5!
