took a whiff inside the bright green plastic bubble sheet in which my medicine comes hospital sunlight on a pretty pretty pretty nurse's hair! dust dancing in a beam of light. smell like a girl.

a skein of white opaques: messages in a bottle each carefully dispatched by sam. before sam -- odu. before odu -- sk.

i take my medicine with tea i hope to take tea with my medicine pi lo chun. golden gleam.

white winter light has yellowed pond water ripples ripens to afternoon blue wind hairplays with it

for me you will always bring more -- pledges the water for me you will always bring more -- pledges the wind

smell like a boy smell like a girl
