Sample piece from Slipping Letters Beneath the Sea

Asbestos Dreams

Each night I died,
each morning I awoke as a white ghost,
the lullaby of the furnace silent.

I fed the fire with rags
and coal that was dug
by other sweating men.

Through the hours of night
I worked at chemical speed
so that later, I could steal sleep.

Curled against the heat,
a snow of ash falling silently upon me;
toxic parachutes floating.

Each night I died,
each morning I wore a shroud
of the finest asbestos cloth.
