Perusing Old Files


On one of our last outings with Kiyoko, we went out to lunch.
Afterwards, we paused in the parking lot for this portrait of Kiyoko and Patricia.


So lightly it goes
and so lightly it comes back
--the swallowtail

Kiyoko Tokutomi
from Kiyoko's Sky, Brooks Books, 2002. 
translated by Fay Aoyagi and Patricia Machmiller


perusing old files
dusty thoughts rise and settle--
the spinning spider
