My poem, “In This Syntax of Water,” was published in George Wallace’s fine on-line poetry magazine, Poetrybay, in the Fall/Winter 2014 issue.

Here’s a sample and the link


A swell of green

I slip below

into the dreamworld of history

the anthropology of my being


I am the grinning fish

who is my ancestor

I swim

in a dreamland

of consciousness. . .
