Today's poem is by Hoa Nguyen


Swell    you can dream more the earth
swells    seeds pop
I glance at the prize
eyes closed in the glancing

It's not a time to run
I wear soft shoes
and it took a long time
to walk here

Insects nudge me in my dreams
like the 5 honeybees plus
the strange one
Intelligent bee glances buzzing

to say    Let me out    The fake
lights confuse us
confuses the source

Worker bee buzzed my neck
directly    me not turning off
lamps fast enough

    just open the door
to the sun
