Rogerthecat really digs this new poem of mine, “Wonderland,” which just appeared in the latest print edition of Blueline, a fine literary journal out of the Adironacks. Hope you enjoy it as much as he does


Sitting by the swollen river
on fireplace remains
the wonderland hotel
an old abandoned line,
I hear nothing but the wind,
scattered leaves a-crinkling,
voices of a couple
approaching from the distance,
either lovers in the moment or
ghosts rising from the past
