A Sneak Preview

Sneak Preview

This is just a sneak preview of my new chapbook , scheduled to be released late Spring:


it is February

January’s snow is melted

reservoir ice too thin for skating

the ice fishers watch morning television

thousands of brown leaves cover

the banks and the mounds

naked trees sleep with no blanket

and there is no morning frost

only rain, splatters against sills,

panes, windshields gray as

the day, somber as a warm winter

we miss the fall of snowflakes

To be continued, end of sneak preview…
