Father's Day- a poem from my new chapbook!

Here’s a poem from my new chapbook- it’s father, a la Sylvia Plath.  The chapbook should be available soon.  My book launch will be on July 15th.

Father’s Day


Green spring erupts,

the kittens,

wild, frantic,


over each other

racing in the barn.

His touch tames.

He presents them

like the  peas he shells and

lines up.


The lull never lasts,

wind whips through cracks of

closed windows.

He’s the one I search for

in shapely dark madness.
