coming storm
the fishing boat engine
gets hiccups


into the wind
on my bicycle jacket
a swallowtail rides


white chrysanthemum
who will remember me
when I'm gone


All Souls' Day

I write down a new name
in the family Bible


rolling thunder —

a hay waggon driver
shoots the whip


table for two

in a tiny tea room
the scent of mint


blindman's buff -

my blind grandson removes
the blindfold
