Minced Meat (2021)

“Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.”

William Makepeace Thackeray

Passively pliable.

False prophets singing from rooftops.

Take them at their *word.

Words without action.

Words eviscerate a soul.

Words can’t move mountains.

Fragile hearts and minds.

Wiser words have never been spoken.


She wrote.

Everything but the full kitchen sink.

Tossed the baby out with the bath water.

An American Minced Meat pie.

Spare Tire

Taking the panic out of my voice.

Measured breaths.

Dancing to the beat of a different drummer

Don’t let Mark tell you who I am

Ulterior motives

Digitizing souls

He’ll sell your soul to the highest bidder

“Roses love sunshine

Violets love dew

Angels in Heaven

Know I love”


I’m Buck & Patty’s oldest granddaughter.

I can buck a bale and can a raspberry.

Fix my own damn flat.

And I’m Luca’s Nammy.
