I keep saying I’m not going to another
holocaust movie.  But then I do.
The latest one set in Augsburg,
1958, when twenty-something Germans
thought Auschwitz was nothing more
than a POW camp and their teachers,
their fathers & their uncles had been,
at worst, good Germans, who didn’t ask
Wanna see some dirty pictures?”
then showed you photos of
Dr. Mengele’s experiments on twins.

I've lived in Tucson since 1953 and retired in 2008 from teaching writing at Pima Community College. I currently volunteer for Sky Island Alliance, a regionally-based environmental organization.

My poems have appeared in journals like Carolina Quarterly, Shenandoah, Barrow Street, RATTLE, and New Poets of the American West.


Diphtheria Festival, my tenth poetry collection, is now available from Main Street Rag Publishing.
