Everything in the Universe

Firefly fossil, / entombed in sap stone, light gobbled by a centuries-old setting / of trapped-air pearls

Creeks of the Upper South

There are things we don't talk about bodies / and what they do sliding toward each other, greasy as candle wicks, the stink of mine drainage in the North Chickamauga...

Cracker Sonnets

What it means to have a woman's body, / Virginia Leabus tells her daughter, "is to stand at the mouth of the cave / and be the cave. Bats flying out of it like hearts."
