About This Poem


"This poem is from my book-length series, Please Bury Me in This, forthcoming from Four Way Books in 2017. Beyond my piano-playing neighbor, who has since moved and been replaced by two quiet brothers, I don't remember writing this poem at all (usually a good sign). Although I do remember the late C. D. Wright's words, 'Follow the lights in your own skull.'"
