Gary Hawkins

Gary Hawkins has lived with his wife and their two dogs in Houston for the past five years, but they are now brand-new Oklahomans. He’ll join and develop a new expository writing program at the University of Oklahoma this fall. Not even this move has convinced him that he doesn’t need a fourth copy of Emily Dickinson.



Fall 2004 | Poetry

Where there were only dirt and needles,
I laid a floor of hardwood and shellac.
I plaited walls into the forest.
