The title poem from my newest book, "Anatomy of a Poet".

Read a Preview:

Buy at Amazon:

Go in through the eyes of a poet
deep into her alphabet mind.
Ideas like flotsam and jetsam
dodge poetry fragments and lines.

Beware the dark shadows of memory,
knife-sharp and bloodied by time,
or gentle, orgasmic and sensual,
swirling eddies, some without rhyme.

Softly notice the spirit in hiding.
Tiptoe past the bruised heart mending there,
knitting poems, pearls strung on a necklace,
unfinished jewels everywhere.

Take note on your tour of this poet
the outside no different you see,
but inside, my God, a passion abyss,
the poet, the woman, the me.

" a passion abyss,
the poet, the woman, the me"

Very intense and concentrated words show the power of feminine nature and its poetic expression.

An effective tribute.
