from overuse, the personal cliches
lined up in a row with repititious images


by the typewriter, my traditional deck
of Tarot cards, dog-earred and worn down,

  1. Interesting blog so far. Congratulations on your publication in May! Good luck with that reading list. Interesting, I always read several books at the same time as well. I'm not always in the mood for the same book when I'm in the mood or have opportunity to read.

  2. Thanks for the comment Tonya. I have been neglecting my nightly reading the last few days— however, Spring Break is around the corner and I plan to catch up then!
