Finding Your China
For every other star that glows / And pulsates with some ion flow / In time becomes some gaping hole, / as embers leave a dying coal.
What You Want to Hear
A lump forms in my throat– / This frog that cannot croak. / I see what you have been I think / I see what you will be I think / I see so mu…
We watched as waves unfolded — / Spilling thoughts onto the land, / And rummaged through their contents / As if for us they had been …
