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.’
her face was riddled.
dug into her cheek
an empty heart
like lovers carve into a tree.
there were no initials
just old skin
rough and crumbly like bark.
she stood alone
an ancient tree in the forest
awaiting a fall
no one would ever hear.
listen to this poem
‘FROM MY FRONT STEPS‘ RELEASE DATE JUNE 5!
