    :
    Oahu and the Search for Higher Intelligence
    Researched May 2005; published by ANA WINGSPAN Magazine, 01 January 2006.
    (I can hear the dolphins coming, the blasts of air from their blowholes sounding like gunshots over the waves as they surface and breathe and dive. I'm alone in the ocean, no boat, no lifejacket, a half-mile offshore, bobbing in the waves, and I'm drifting over the undersea cave of a monster tiger shark. Inhaling, sinking down and spinning around like a wide-eyed seahorse suspended in midwater, I see the dolphins coming on me... )

  • LESLIE'S GHOST
    :
    The Archeology of A Small Town Massachusetts Life
    A personal essay, submitted April 2005 to my favorite magazine, The Sun (declined); post-scripted and posted, 16 October 2005.
    (Leslie's dead. It's fifteen below zero. Ghost is on the porch, shivering in the excitement of stalking the squirrels under the bird feeder. Still a young cat at six months, Ghost is the only thing at Leslie's old house that does not reek of decay or entropy. His being is still unfolding, a little white joy on four legs. He freezes, one leg in mid-air, when the squirrels look up, and then he advances, in inches. Dad and I watch him from the kitchen as he plots a massacre. )
