“Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life. Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something.” –Thoreau

National Poetry Month.

National Poetry Month is upon us. Apparently. So here is something new, a memory of the Japan I love.






before the tremors cause me to forget



          suzy
tried to fit her
fist




       in her mouth.

                     we sat


on the train.




              a Japanese man cried,




       laughing.
