halftime 
remembering a goal 
decades ago
my husband tries
to crack a nut

no words 
the mantle clock
ticking 
the goalkeeper  saves 
the penalty kick

watering the garden
I try to remember
a bygone summer
the taste of
a special wine

today's dinner
a hotpot with
carrots and onions
like always I hum
grandmother's song

old jars
on a shelf
leftover paints
my doll's house had
green doors

green tea
a sip
and another
the old bowl was made
in Kyoto

(AW, April 2011)










in my mind
terms like these
nuclear power plant
genpatsu-shinsai
but I know nothing
