like a mouth of a newborn -

No entry zone, no . . .
can you say to my memories
not to return home?

Yellow butterfly
on a numbered grave —
I love you, unknown child!

My Loved Japan, Best Books of 2011, The Japan Times

Light autumn sky —
ragdoll sinks into the sea
with its eyes open.

a village on the seashore —
a handful of salt.

Ko, autumn-intern, 2005

Price of a rice bag —
the light of day turns into
a letter of spring.
