Selected Work
 
outside the high-rise
the steady song
of a straw broom
 
autumn 
an empty booster seat 
in the barber's window
 
 
 
one street connects
to another—
cherry blossoms
 
fermenting bean curd
the lines
deeper
 
 
 
burning sun—
the glint of jelly jars
at the fruit stand
 
light in the attic—
camellias carved
in cinnabar
