From the Introduction:


In college, I was a double major in Literary Criticism and Creative Writing. At my school, for each major you had, you had to also have a minor. So, always the optimist, for my Creative Writing degree I majored in short story writing and minored in poetry. I loved it, but mostly because no one in that department was really paying attention to my grammar.

From White Mushrooms:


This year, the first snow of December

came earlier and heavier

than many of us can remember.

Rounded piles of snow built up on

picnic tables

trash cans,

forgotten garden gnomes,

little, decorative shrubs

planted and pampered

through long, humid

summer days

buried now


white mushrooms.
