Book Teaser – Beyond the Border Kingdom

The poem below is a teaser from my first collection that will be published in a couple of months.  I am finishing up the selection list and completing the final edits.  It will be titled “Beyond the Border Kingdom” and is an attempt to look beyond the daily struggle, the lack of answers, too many questions, and find where we came from.


(4)

on lake superior shores
miles from artificial illumination

red and white lights float
we watch the show for hours

entertaining ourselves with
theories and conspiracies –

what would you do
if they landed here

– until we can no longer differentiate
one light or object from another

constellations become one mass
we have forgotten the names of.

under black hole poked sky we
stumble back to cabin #7 on the hill.
