  2. David's poetry really connects to me. Mostly they are poems about the small things that we all encounter. When I read his collection of poems in "Span" it slowed my life down. I can't really remember too many times in this busy world of instant communication where my world has slowed down. Currently "Span" is being republished for online and paperback sales. I will post a link as soon as it is published.

    This video is also the product of an assignment in the TV documentary class at CSU-Pueblo. The goals of this assignment were to get a personal interview with the same framing throughout the interview.

    Poem mentioned in video:


    waking up in the yurt was like
    waking up from a dream and finding
    that you’ve been asleep in heaven the whole time

    and a dragonfly deftly zig-zags
    a silently stitched pattern in the doorway
    i watch you lying there,
    still, but for your breathing
    the rhythms of Mother Ocean’s tide
    her tiny rising and falling even flow
    like the placid lake-water
    lapping at the shore of this dream

    naked without covers
    latticed sunlight and shadow
    cross over you like a form-fitting net
    with an illusory appearance of bondage
    which cannot hold you now;
    rapid eye movements, fluttering wings
    and toe-twitching dreams

    suddenly there is this dragonfly inside me
    who wants to hover above you,
    moving here and there, momentarily
    wingtips caress the surface
    sending ripples throughout the whole
