Welcome to my online portfolio, home to what I feel constitutes my best literary nonfiction, poetry, flash fiction, & photography, with links to my published work, as well as the occasional editorial or research update.

Self Portait In Retrospect

I

Intentions
 Lit with brilliant glare of
 what could be sat lofty ideals
 of an equitable balance; similar
 paradigms of self and others with
 fair position on sustainable ground.

Assumptions
 Escalating fragments, divergent
 courses of life, interest, and heart
 were the allowances for not only
 one slight re-frame.

III

Reality
Under heavy shadow of what could
 have been, ideals now merely vantage
point; the blurred, lost focus of our
 essential relevance.
