I’m professor Emeritus of English at SUNY Orange. I live in the Hudson Valley. I’ve published six poetry collections as well as extensively in magazines and anthologies.
Morning in Late November
The blast from the shotgun
startles the wood duck from the water.
What shall I do with my anger,
which is louder
than the wood duck's cry
but not as loud as the shotgun?
