Dave Ruslander

Blue Heron

Statue-still I stand
by undulating turquoise.
I wait.

Gulls cry overhead,
geese honk,
Purple Martins eat on the wing.

Hungry, I fish.

Dave Ruslander lives in rural Virginia. True to the sweeping-generalization that Southerners are slow, he didn't get around to writing until he was fifty. Since then he's written poetry, short stories, and one novel. His work has been published in The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature, The Green Tricycle, Cenotaph Pocket Edition, Mipo, Melic Review, Snow Monkey, 2Avant, and many others. Dave has bipolar disorder.
