This poetic narrative was conceived in an unbearably hot apartment where I lived on noodles bought with my saved-up wad. I'd escape in daytime to the hospital canteen, from which I could write & gaze over the university, surrounding cottonwoods & roofs, & the low hills beyond the river. Six years later, when I finished, I thought I might die, as I had finished what I was on earth to do.

Madonna with Leaves
A short animation with the poems Madonna with Leaves, the first poem in the book.Wands
In the desolation that follows her last breath,
Crooked wands blush and spread, pink as a cold cheek,
Forked tongues sampling--
Not without sympathy--
A lull, like the stalemate after an argument,
An ache, barren as the final,
Apologetic brush of fingertips.
