When the DJ Played “Lovefool” on the First Night of Carnival Season in a New Orleans Nightclub, 2018

Tokyo Lights

We are not siluets, 
we are above them all.
The red stripes in my head

and reeds split

upon my tongue.

But you are wrong

and still I sing,

and though you say,

my life, is but a whisper

in the age of mountains,

I am here.


I am here.
