"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.

in that stationary instant
the world fell into tumbling shards
breath ceased to feed oxygen into her cells
every living thing pulverized each organ and limb
bark peeled simultaneously from every tree
roots arched and heaved from the earth
leaves quivered to the ground
bursting into aqua flame
and were gone
