Origami Micro-chapbook

Selected Poem(s)



{mooblock=Opening Lines}

It was the nails that we were always in want of, did not matter what the length.
The word but mentioned and our senses went on high alert.
The back swing of hefting the hammer set us off balance
before we could place our perception of precision on the head of our intent.

On every board you could nearly bet there would be three bent nails to every straight one.

Thus became the name of our tree house, Three to One.

In Quiet Places

{mooblock=My Wild Hunger}

I hungered for a white horse
the same way some coveted
a house with a white picket fence
very young, I knew paint peeled
liked scabs refusing to heal
I would not be confined
I could not be constricted
I ran with the white stallion
outside the boundaries placed
by society
