MOON tattoo


older poems:


this doorbell
is for the inside
of your house

to some
you’re the giant
you’re not

hearing isn’t for everyone

a fog-softened man
with a baby
might experience
a sense
of boat


what you know



a foster boy using an alias teaches my son to shoot.

it’s the tooth fairy on a sad day finds
under my pillow
a handgun.

you know your father
is a night owl.


[dog years]

the longer
I grieve

the more
