Day 18 – snowflake birth mother; hiroshi

Day 18
1:20 am

snowflake birth mother

we singe the clouds with
our foolishness, noisome
thrashers against the sky,
we’ll ask for her forgiveness
and throw tantrums when
she dies

tkk
(title from c-k)

hiroshi

no cries, no sniffling
just the sound of bingo cards
hiroshi wins now

persuades his grandkids
to play at the nursery
the grass grows green here

tkk
(in memory of Hiroshi Nakamura, 1919-2010)
