A Few Poems

令和二年二月七日

Unable to speak
Or even to scream, that hand
Clasped over my mouth
So suddenly it happened
There, in the bright light of day

Silenced

令和二年二月九日

The question is asked
With well-meaning disinterest
How are you doing?
Fine, I say, just fine, hiding
The scars of my nail-pocked palms

In answer to your question
#poetry365

令和二年二月十一日

I wanted to sing
But when I opened my mouth
The words disappeared
And only the bitter taste
Of salt lingered on my lips

Silent song
#poetry365
