Sorted by title, showing title and first line

Such insignificance: a glance
Speaking of marvels, I am alive
All night the knot in the shoelace
Our trees are aspens, but people
The moon lies on the river
In 1936, a child
I. Insomnia
You have read War and Peace.
In Sleeping Beauty's castle
Doctor, you say there are no haloes
When the moon was full they came to the water.
Among rocks, I am the loose one,
Jenny, your mind commands
For Lucy, who called them "ghost houses."
After the kill, there is the feast.
In memory of Dimitri Mitropoulos
The laughter of women sets fire
What happened is, we grew lonely
If an inaudible whistle
For Linda Foster
