Here is a poem of mine that first appeared in London Magazine
Once I Never Thought of Knowing
Once I never thought of knowing
writers, people who filled
pages with adventures, but more
interesting inner life
hearing songs inside the lilacs
penning phrases like ‘ you must change your life’
now in most astounding freedom
I have shelves of books signed
not in shopping center malls
but by people whose ways I follow
yet it was not knowing writers
that changed me
nor knowing even that I could write
but knowing there were eternal
ways words bring water to a desert
