“Ruins” is one of my favorite recent poems. “Ruins’ is under consideration at one of my favorite literary journals!

When it is published, I hope to re-post the poem here.

Mailed to Dairine P. of Goleta, CA, fourth on my 2013 Postcard Poetry Project list.

  1. Wow, I missed these in August. We were having a rough summer, deaths of friends, family, car repairs. But how beautiful to look back and find these soulful words were being posted. I suppose it’s like hearing the blues, the way that recognition makes us sing.
