I dreamed of a door - EDIT
I wore the thread that slipped from my daughter's baby blanket around my wrist,
white against tan, bumpy yarn,
it's been four years since my mother patiently crocheted the stitches together
while my daughter rolled in my belly,
I dream and there are doors under my fingers
and I am alone.
I take my daughter down to the river.
The water ripples slowly past, carrying barges
for hundreds of years, my shoulders tan darker,
we are absorbing the sun, gorging on sweet cherries
and overripe strawberries.
I write a will and wonder what will become of you,
my fearless daughter.
I teach you to understand the majestic, eternal vastness of a river, then
spend the day skipping rocks out across the water,
to worship the sand between your toes, to pray
to the old Native American trickster gods,
the coyote trotting across the fields of waving grain,
the bright, crafty eyes of the fox, the sly, thieving crows,
to not see the world in black and white
or spend too much time waiting.

This is the spot where I am supposed to write about how I am better than you:

published in some lit mags/journals/ezines including Poets and Writers, Rattle, Barnwood, etc etc etc whatever, ask if you want to know them all.

won the 2009 New Letters Poetry Prize judged by Kim Addonizio

published four books (3 poetry, 1 flash fiction). Three out of print and sold out, one still available - please click the book photo above for more info.

Currently working toward getting into a super pretentious MFA program and busy, but also interested in why you write like such an asshole.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

Current Residence: Snow.
Favourite photographer: Shutter snap and then goodbye.
MP3 player of choice: Anne Carson.
Skin of choice: Freckles behind your ears.

Hey guys!  I have a new chapbook out.  You can either sign up for a Rattle subscription and get a copy with the subscription OR buy the book individually here:…

I also have a shit ton of contributor copies and will be doing a package deal directly from me very soon (or if you want to message me and wrangle a deal with my other books, feel free!)

I love you and I miss you all!

Look, you word whore, I am back and you are not and that is just rude. And I KNOW you're around writing. So like, come back for the summer and give me someone to talk to. It's fucking crickets around here.

Sorry for the huge blank space, by the way. Was gonna draw you a pretty picture but it wasn't working out...
biodeferentiata Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2015
So why'd ya take down your poems anyway? Excuse me for saying, but you don't seem the type... Not in a bad way. Or in a good way. Just a neutral way.

The one that sticks best in my mind after all these years is "I sure as hell wasn't east of Eden." I love dat one. But I just found it so it's OK.

I can't have anything online if I publish them. So I'll post here until I send it out and then it goes in storage. Most lit mags have gotten pretty anal about previously published = anywhere online, even a personal page. It's been a win some lose some as my audience here no longer exists because of me deleting so often so then I sell less books ... but I can't publish books without creds in lit mags, who wouldn't publish me if I kept posting here. So ... Lol.
