Pleasantly hunched
in a corner of a borrowed room,
I dutifully peek at my Greek
word cards: isos, istemi, istion.
Words are all I own.

Across town, she’s blithely
munching experiences like
a caterpillar in June,
ever so slowly turning into who knows what.

A few years before hitting
the half-century mark, and Wang Wei
bushwhacks me with the line:
“Darkness bleeds across a thousand miles.”
