"Put your ear down close to your soul and listen hard." Anne Sexton

Her poetry and drawings can be found in various digital and print journals around the globe, and on the web.  She currently resides in New England and prefers the precipice of where the Atlantic meets the sand to the official looking office where she spends most of her time.

value need not be quantified

or serendipitous integrity justified, yet

as memories placate, seconds philandering

backward movement, chained close to the throat

and dna winding, haunting syllables resonate

parallel, out front and behind

a falsely advantageous structure of home, so

stones tumble with a glance, prospects lost and found

in a flashbulb burst, over-glorified

justification of perpendicular faults

as the fictitious foundations crumble
