old age home –
a pill for everything
but loneliness

old books sale
beating me to the top shelf
a silverfish
mourning –
the loudness
of a ticking clock

free period . . .
even the blackboard
Buddha’s half-smile
for a moment I forget
the moment
Hiroshima Day –
flying across the globe
our paper cranes
home after holidays
the doorknob shimmers
with a cobweb
cumulus clouds
shimmering through the window
the airplane's wing
