bio


photo by maja trochimczyk

    "I am the author of Ropeless, a 15-time award-winning novel that challenges cultural assumptions about disabilities (www.ReadRopeless.com). My short fiction and poetry are widely published, with recent and forthcoming work in Fourth River, Blue Unicorn, and Main Street Rag. I have more received more than 50 awards, amongst them three Pushcart nominations."

   

 

La Poir Hautaine

You, who were
too high, have
fallen. Your blush

now browns toward
bruise. You, who
dizzied the bees

with the sway
of your bountiful
bottom, who flirted

behind your green
fan, not one
picked. Your sweet

signals, first coy
then cloying, seduced
sudden sparrows whose

mocking kisses pricked
into pocks, as
those who rode

the boughs below
suggested themselves to
hands, their still

sticky spill warming
summerís willing lips
