Kids at Play

I look outside
On this red day
Of bad bad air
In Seoul and hear
The hum of the
Machine that is
Supposed to clean
It and see the
Ball bounce off
The wall into
The glove of the
Little little girl

 

 

Birthmark

What you see
As a birthmark
On my face
Is not always
What it seems
As my mother’s
Only child I swear:
Even twins fight
To the death

 

 

On a Rose

Al-Haifa waxed eloquently
On the beauty of the barb
At a distance but did he
Know the pleasures of
Thorns as in the pleasure
Of an unknown lover as
They brush the hair on one’s
Arms, the sigh as they bite
Into flesh? May the Lord
Bless Al-Haifa there is
Pleasure in all things

 

 

Epilogue

The branch cut
For fire to keep
Us warm at the
End of a book
