An Excerpt:


                   Naples, Florida

At first, I thought it was happiness

that made her rock her head from left to right,

again, again — that girl, maybe twelve, in her pink


skirted two-piece, her dark hair swimming,

gorgeous, down her back. She clutched an Ipad

in a thick pink rubber case.
