    Synchronicity this a.m. when finding your poem Kelly Sleeping in my inbox via Poem-A-Day of poets.org and then open Poemhunters here and see your name on the list of just published poems on the site. Moved by the Kelly Dreaming poem I shared it on my Facebook page...and now there are all these to read and savor. The title alone of In A U-Haul North of Damascus evokes or is a poem all by itself. Happy to have discovered your work. All the best.

In The Black Camaro

Through the orange glow of taillights,
I crossed the dirt road, entered
the half-mile of darkness and owl screech,
tangled briar and fallen trunk, followed
the yellow beam of Billy Parker's flashlight
down the slick needle-hill,
half crawling, half sliding and kicking
for footholds, tearing up whole handfuls
of scrub brush and leaf mold
