Below is a poem about my mission as a writer, in text and audio. Or if you prefer your explanations in prose, see Why I Write.
The Writer’s Call
Your words must scrub the floor for love,
I heard it all declare. I kissed my pen,
swore this decree to air.
Then set to work on bended knee, a childlike creep
through house and street, to clean through
what’s encrusted there.
It’s done for you, kind reader, dear,
who walks my words across the page,
who seeks clear ground in marks I make:
that glisten in your gleaning eye,
that shines with mine, us both to see
how in the clearing, all can be.
