Master of Peace – Solano County Fair Reserve Best of Show

“Master of Peace” won Reserve Best of Show and First Place in Published Poetry at the 2016 Solano County Fair. I’m stunned, honored, and grateful. It appears in the book Id Biscuits.

Master of Peace

After the world slowly
broke my heart
into tiny chips
of dry paint,
you handed me a brush
and called me
a masterpiece,
and I was wise enough
to believe you.
