first draft, grieving & healing

SAM_4551 2Little ranch                  decades old apartment

Frozen dumplings      dusty glass

Fresh anger                  peaceful summers

Cold school                   mosquito nights

Quiet winters               laolao’s piano

Pretending to sleep         tomato-dough soup

Aimless wandering        hot lazy days

Long Island                    Beijing

Misplaced                     home-

Haven’t decided on a title but this is the first of many poems with a dichotomy of my lives in many homes. ¬†May my laolao who passed in the final week of July rest in peace.
