Algebraic youth

The ratio of hearts broken
to girls loved

lacked only the coefficient
of understanding

statistics quantify the what
fail to enumerate
the costs, causes and effects

showing the work only proves
what I have long known;
I suck at math.

I am a poet, writer, and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 then returned to Minnesota in 2018 - hopefully, to stay.

I lived in the most urban of settings, and the rural Midwest. These perspectives impact my writing in very unique ways.
