Slices of Life (1992)

This is a short poetry chapbook featuring poems by friend and sometime poet Jennifer Jensen, my father, and me. The poems are arranged by stages of life. Most of these poems were eventually published elsewhere, too, but this collection recalls a period when the three of us were all actively writing.
