"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.

she will be your

inevitable stretch

cunning misconduct

against silken linens

compulsory tonic

a perfectly weighted glass

tastefully painted nails

in the midst of a january squall

she will be the artist

in company of banal accountants

calculating your future

movement with measured vigor

she will integrate flour and water

stir, and preheat the oven
