What People are Saying

"Every revolting scent and sight is described so thoroughly, that it felt as though at that moment I was THERE. I found this book quite enjoyable... These pages have something for every reader, and I highly recommend it!"

the modern pastoral

it is the AGE & PLACE

of the modern pastoral

exactly as it sounds

          the buzzard on a college campus

                          feasting on a skunk

          the snakes in pool filters

          the pale horses looking out

                          at strip malls and parking lots


the mountains crash


     the mockingbird nesting on golf courses

     and egrets cooling their feet

                     in drainage ditches


imperfect and hideous child

it is ours

to bear witness

and record
