Sample piece from Slipping Letters Beneath the SeaTelegrams
death came mainly in the post.
A respectful knock on the door.
A letter slipped beneath the sea.
The telegrams would bring to mind
Uncle Dead Stop
Blues 6 Villa 2 Stop.
Mostly bodies we didn't know,
sketched outlines in life,
corporeal now in death.
But for you
the death was an accusation,
the final ripples of your estrangement.
