Poems and Works in Progress (WIPs)


I created this page to share my completed poems and works in progress.

I never know when a poem will present itself to me or the final form it will take. The words speak to me in different ways. I am just a conduit on the path to their final landing place.

Father Playing with Son

Happy Meal

He brought me a happy meal

chicken nuggets

Big Mac

fries dipped in ketchup

Father, son sitting at the coffee table

Bad dad jokes, laughing

I didn’t know that would be my last day as a child.

I didn’t know the familiar sound of the screen door shutting would change everything.

Footsteps on the front porch

car engine roar

tires rolling on the gravel drive

sounds I heard every day of my youth
