The 13-Gon
Latest Poem

Verrazzano/Upper New York Harbor, 2023.


toes — cherries

painted Ruby bright —


kaleidoscope bliss

in Cornflower bruises /

tattoos /

pearls — i'm

aurora briny glitter

adamant and circumspect:

circumnavigation —

zero / naught — my 

Dayglo Blush unfurls.

odalisque / mermaid as the sun sets in 3 colors

a poem from

For Lack of Diamond Years 

* this is not a poem or a painting — "this is not my beautiful house" — it's a portal *
