Weekly Feature: Poetry at The Arts Fuse

Welcome to “Poetry at The Arts Fuse.” A new poem every Thursday.


“house finch nesting” from The House Begins An Alphabet


  house finch nesting

    in knotted hair that sigh

for seeded minutes

            seeded minutes


a stripped cove


            some days

cool weather

 breaks chest bone

 some days, it blows the house down

 hurries in the house song




     always in wooden is the wood


for Sally
