"On a Hot April day"

I wake up

Feel the hotness of my skin
Open the tiny hole of my room
Gives me some soft breezes
Listen to Bob Marley’s soulful voice
Drink a bottle of grapefruit juice
Letting all of this go into my stomach
My body cherishes, shakes because of the coldness

Let’s get out of this shell

Wooster Street
Say hi to John
Say hello to a painter
Say Good morning to me

I drink Seagram’s Seltzer
Instead of Poland Spring
Bubbles through my throat
Pops through my mind
Like when Mako looks at me for the first time

“Mom! I want ice cream!”
Children make a line
To lick swirling ice cream
Pink, green, yellow, blue sweets

Skin Parade on the street
Melty chocolate Black
Long Island tea Brown
Juicy Lemon Yellow
Sweet Sugar White
This is New York

Cherry blossoms
“Sakura ga saita”
Blooming, dancing in the air
Floating pink snow
Even serious faces have smiles
Under the pink trees
Walking up into the air

I will sleep without pajamas tonight
