About the Author

Press Kit

wind from the sea            from a painting by Andrew Wyeth

precise brush strokes

they record how land & people
touch   define their edges

details   this is the way
we try to memorize our lives

small cracks of light
through a dark blind

lace curtains waver
by a window   light &
shadow overlap
in fragile patterns

curtains try to hold the wind
but only touch it for a moment
as it slips through
textured fingers

we remember a curtain
a blind   a window
as though we could make sense
of things   fit our past
in a design

all those images
revenants that reappear
in photographs
& dreams
