The book The House of the World has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and is now available on Amazon.


How do you make a boat?
From foil surrounding cigarettes.
A sail of silver cut with a pocket knife.
A sliver of wood for mast,
and the sail and mast
inserted into debris
from the water’s edge.
You only need a wing,
buoyancy and air,
the tension of water’s wake,
and a heart fashioning another.
A place where fathers and sons
can go,
on voyages together.
