Three Tanka just published in the last issue of Breath & Shadow

where

is your native land?

dipped in mud,

my head covered

with the thin blanket of poverty



refugees

on their last legs--

playground stones

in the cupped hand

of a lifeless child



agoraphobia...

who can blame me for

declining to defy

such whiteness with the

snowshoe cruelty of tracks
