Two new surrealistic poems

The Collidescope has published two of my poems, “A Piece of Lake Came Loose” and “Bedtime Routine.”  I wrote these in a couple of generative poetry sessions at the Willamette Writers Conference this summer, both taught by Armin Tolentino, the current Poet Laureate of Clark County, WA.  They came about as a result of his exercises having us play with language and metaphor. 

I’m so grateful to Armin for his engaging events, and to my friend and workshop co-instructor, Elizabeth Beechwood, for recommending that I go to them!
