Poetry. Interrelated blocks of prose poems that weave through beautiful narratives--personal yet universal--layering lyric fictions over and under one another into the deeper truths about the earth, interpersonal relationships, and humanity, the language of heat, poverty, darkness and light, hunger, and the contemporary myths from which truth is found.
