“Politics of Desperation” … published in MiPOesias, 2006

A poem – timely perhaps – published in MiPOesias a decade ago:

“Politics of Desperation”

What we cannot do now is imagine
any other way.


Soft gurgles of three cowbirds
over the fence line.
Shadows in elm & spruce & oak.
Mist along the river stones.
Salt-spill on the table
and windows mapped with prints.2013-09-29 13.08.02
The tiniest thread of winter,
a gift, in mid-summer sky.


Thanks to Didi Menendez for believing in the poem.
