“It’s writing that keeps me alive.

It’s how I find meaning, not just in my own art, but in what’s around me.

And when it works, it bridges the divide between myself and the world.”

From “Choosing a Stone I”

Go out and gather stones
when it’s raining,
on a day when a single gesture

anchors the world, and a stone
reflects the deeper contemplation
of whoever cradles it,

shining and wet in his palm.
