Ascent Aspirations: “These Confounded Desires”

I’m pleased to share that Ascent Aspirations has published my poem “These Confounded Desires” in its September 2010 issue. You can read it there or here:

 
These Confounded Desires

I felt at ease with my desires undeclared—
I didn’t want their objects all the same.

But they kept lining up like autos
in used car lots,
lies on their meters
and paint layered over
their hungry scabs of rust.

With so little difference between them,
it took years to see them all.
