Off the Rocks, Volume 12, December 2005.

Off The Rocks is NewTown Writers’ print anthology of poetry, prose, and artwork celebrating the glbt community.

Special thanks to Mark Maroney, this volume’s editor, who worked patiently with me to get my work right.

Originally read as part of Working Stiffs 3, produced by NewTown Writers at Bailiwick Art Center, Chicago, June 2004.

Also performed as part of This Much Is True at the Hopleaf Bar, Chicago, March 8, 2011.

I am checking availability of this issue.

For two summers in college, I worked grounds crew at a cemetery. A car ride through the grounds with my father ten years later brings life full circle.
