Between Market and Mission
ďI want to tell you three things,Ē he says.


Two months since the last poem
Why in the two months since you left
did words leave too?


My mind hums within
My mind hums within
your hour of grace.


I moved here from Texas
I tunneled a hole through dirt
as a child digs for China


What I canít ask
Did the pink tulips
bloom on the catís grave?
