  • Logs

    Giants lie entangled on wet sand,
  • The Rainbow Sign, The Shirt and After All

    God gave Noah the rainbow sign,
  • The Lost Explorers

    Give me the lost explorers, the last-seens,
  • Poet’s Walk, Central Park Mall

    Shakespeare, Robert Burns, and Fitz-Greene Halleck
  • The Night Dancers

    Praise the shadows that slither up candlelit walls
