“Raised in both a children’s home and in foster homes, he somehow never made it to prison, disappointing both himself and those who still consign kids like the one he was to fates they inexplicably deserve by birth. He holds degrees, held a Fulbright (Denmark) and made his way in the world as a jack-of-many-jobs, including teaching and writing. A resident of a secluded hilltop south of Spring Green, he has now retired.” (David’s words)

against the crown,
While earth, plowed topsy-turvy,
thrusts back, out of sight.
What would be green begins in blackness,
