The Decanto Poetry Magazine/Anthology has seen fit to publish a poem of mine!

Elegy To My Grandmother

Grandmother’s gone
She of the auburn red hair, braided into buns
over her ears–

She can no longer advise me,
she who gave me space
as I grew into adulthood
on that summer day when I was young.

She saw me as an adult
the way no one else had.
She made no judgments
on my ways.
She supported my moods
however they showed.

She can no longer polish her
hardwood floors.
Her Swede-killer brush has gone
and there is no one to wield it.
Nor are there any floors
to polish anymore–

Gone too are the windows I gazed from–
into the soft summer nights
when my heart was torn
by desire and loss.

The windows where I saw the faint outlines
and red tail lights of the car
belonging to my heart’s first
love and my body’s desire.

She is gone, who gave me a melancholy book
to match my mood.
She had been in that place–
She knew what I needed–

She stood by me.

I miss her.

Fracking halted in New York State! From a post on Facebook...

Seismologik Intelligence

Congratulations NY, Governor Cuomo has put a halt on FRACKING in New York State. This would not have happened without the hard work and dedication of all the many groups, activists, organizers and concerned citizens who stood up and spoke out against the fossil fuel industry. Next up: NO TO TAR SANDS. #ForwardonClimate! We will see you in Washington D.C!
