Her work has appeared in Crazyhorse, the Southern Review, and Tar River Poetry, and at Poetry Daily and Verse Daily. She holds an MFA from Queens University of Charlotte.

Still Water

More than marginal,
a gloss its striders depend on.

Prefaced by duckweed. Argument
with the merely clever,
philosophy of sunrise and lily.

Marked by the day's drift of pollen,
turning page of a sky
that keeps two secrets: daylight

and night--all this, fully indexed,
leaf by floating leaf.
