lives descending into stone.

Her poem, Not Like Orpheus  from her up-coming 9/11 manuscript appeared in the Broadkill Review. An excerpt of the poem appears below:

       I made myself stay in the passenger
seat, used my asthma as an excuse,
rolled up the windows when we
got to the Pile, let others unload 
water and candy from the van.

Did you feel 

the burned and bloodied stockings of the woman

struggling down the steps, the panic of the man

behind urging her to pull off her shoes, run faster?...
