This is where you can find all of my fiction, including Gravedigger. This way, some of my other work - I know some of you are fond of White Fire Brother in particular - will not get lost in my gallery.

fat concrete earth-mothers
from the mouth of a crooked well.
my punctured leech tree sags
all sweat stolen, robbed of fever.

starved crows fly, an ink-spittle
to roost on my white mirror.

the milk behind my frown is black.
is a flogged colour.
The shade bruises the palate
with the sour taste of teeth,
and cancer of the marrow.
It comes to my door for charity
every month or more,
butchering the moon into cuts
it wraps them up,
corpse-swaddled in a cloth-of-clocks.

tie me to a pew
or a nice evangelical chair,
the kind that stack,
and tell me that I’m bad.
She wants him desperately
to wear his mask,
that special collar she knows so well
and to pretend
to be God for an hour or so.
Send the kids to Sunday School
so we can be alone
with the suit and tie
or the flowing robes
the substitute that slips from skin to skin.
This mighty man of God
cracked the whip
flagellation, church tradition
and his back is as bloody
as any of his beaten sheep.

Janice's feet hurt. They burned from her heel to her clenching toes.
'David, my feet are killing me.'
'You said.' Her boyfriend sounded tired. He glanced back at her and shifted his backpack to try and make it more comfortable. 'You keep saying it. I can't do anything about it.'
'They rub like a bitch.' Her voice was an irritating whine in her own ears.
'Yeah. I'm sorry. Just... just a bit further, love.' He turned and walked on, trying not to get too far ahead of her. The stony track was uncomfortable underfoot, but it was safe compared to walking on the grass at the edge. The sunset lit up the tumbled boulders at the bottom of the oppos

This earth, which was taken from my ancestors
As well as my children.
My bones were created from this earth.
This earth of wood and water that will never change
And will never be the same.
My bones will be buried in this earth.
This earth, that cannot be claimed

My bones will become this earth.
This earth, sacred to all who have passed it
But will no longer be sacred for anyone.
My bones will make more bones in this earth.
This earth, which is becoming as brittle as my skeleton
Will become its own group of bones.
My bones will question the spirits of the e
twilight IIIt's a long, long songtwilight II by ~summernightangel
That is being sung all around
It's a sweet sweet sound as you taste the harmony
The opal moon hangs low and full
And takes the alto melody, low and long and sweet and free
Dances of dust-motes falling all around,
The next minute tiny crystal glitters of snow,
Magic raining from on high, then low in the long grass

The scents of grassy summer, the freshest mountain snow
Colors inverted, swirled, contrasted, blended-
Only the mo
