Featured Work

The Jefferson Journal published three of my poems in its September/October 2020 issue. I’ve chosen one as the Featured Work; the two others can be found in the Publications Gallery.

The Second Umpqua Strong 9k & 5k

Held some glad morning:
in 2017, on the day
before October

in memory of
our Nine, each one

borne by a feather
banner, each name

meant to measure how far
we’ve come, how ably we

fly past brokenness as

we carry you
with us always

along a course
intended as an outlet

instead bringing us
back

to where it began.
