It took a while, but I finally found a bookstore in DC that had tina brown celona's book of poems the real moon of poetry and other poems in stock. So, here's a tina brown celona poem:

jade rabbit

i consider writing about something
i have written about before
but am interrupted by something outside
very wet because of the rain
and it occurs to me i will never
say convincingly "lets go swimming"
because you know i dont like swimming
though we go often but because
i always say "so should we go
swimming" doubtfully
looking at my jade rabbit
his humid posture and placid posture
as he nibbles the orange ground
of a book by john ashbury
rivers and mountains

tina brown celona will be reading at housing works in nyc on January 30.
