For a second
I was able
to see the shooter's
screen, a blank
slate. His movements
were jerky, out
of control, holding
his weapon lifted
high in the air
ran. He chose
a date that no one
could mistake, that
of September 11th.
My role of teacher
has changed in these
parents. It all
I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York.
My goal is to create and share poetry with others
who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve
in you, and feel your sparks as well.

There do not seem to be any clear motives anymore, which is even more frightening.
