Radical
transformation: butterfly
culture to
dog eat dog battles
no one wins.

Six minutes
per week to relax, too stressed
to love, or
play or laugh. Too dry:
sexless life.

Tiger girl
still has passion for Hyuntay,
but Dad is
never home, fully
Korean.

Here we are
together to sleep, maybe
one meal or
spring stroll: twenty step
family.

Anchored in
oblivion, attached to
lost friends, so
gone they have no fond
memories.

You do though…
the flowers picked, presented
to warm eyes,
neighborhood news man
bicycling.

Chestnut wars
fifty paces from “blue lake.”
She jumps in,
swims under water,
pulls shorts down.

Decisions
pile, conspire, socialize, while
baked clams soak.
You walk into gray.
Where’s Hyuntay?
