a poor Zen temple the single shoji screen makes a spring teahouse
if Robert were here he’d know this mushroom growing on his grave
city pier in summer heat a cruise ship glides by
this and that all week long the yellow leaves falling
floating above the morning haze Ellis Island
house slippers simply from being worn they’ve become left and right
