How one, a little quicker than the rest, careens into the other half of you. --The Journey while others adopt a more somber bent, Lord, let them be content with solitude. Let the wind move gently over their jutting bones. Croon them to sleep with their old pet names. --The Graveyard at the Ruins of the Monastery) Most of the poems contained here appeared in international literary journals such as Measure, The Literary Bohemian and Mezzo Cammin; some are in print for the first time.
