Selected Work
spring moon
she re-threads my dead
nana's pearls
where soldiers
once slept and died—
a spider's home
gather at dusk
to sing
face to face with Socrates
the bored expression
of a security guard
while reading Raizan
"the spring rain"
starts to rain
still grave stones remain
still grave stone remains
still grave stones...
