mindful (for Lan)

awake I lie here
listening to her breathing
as I’ve done each night
over fifty years of love
joy and sorrow hand in hand

Limerick for National Limerick Day

There once was a candidate, The Donald,
who left many a thinking mind boggled.
For his ideas roamed
the way his hair was combed
and were on fascism partly modeled.

dialog while watching the crescent moon set in the West (for Lan)

she: love’s a plantain
cooked with sweet rice and fish sauce

he: I’m here  mình ơi

haikai no renga – in re: the 2016 White House Correspondents dinner

laugh it up, you guys
[they are mostly guys] next comes
the apocalypse
so, blokes, pick your lodging now
in the sulfurous Eighth Ring
