1.  zhi chi

one night
I lay on the bed
sleepless because of the pain

when I used my tongue
to feel the little barb
at the very end of my mouth

that was when I remembered
a lost friend
it hurts after all these years

pain
a room of one’s own
caves of a battled wolf and
a trapped fox
shade of a banyan tree for
a drifter to sleep under
cries and wakes for
the lost key of
childhood

3. sa-rang-nee

thinking back
on our silence
on the phone
strangers
only wanted to
sense the presence
a little longer
