Cento Poem

Rain is falling through the roof, and all that prospered under the sun.

Half the day lost, staring at this window. In signing and dismay.

The rain tastes like salt, and rises in the streets like a ruinous tide.

We spoke of hours and hours; we [...]

Cento poem

Distributing Happiness

Thinking of me kneeling in the grass among fallen blossoms, Felt sad looking at fallen blossoms, But nature will do such things from time to time.

When I am not present, how could something significant occur?

Circling my room, impatient with my blossoming, tired of the neat house, the made [...]

Cento Poem

Somehow I get into my room,

I lie on the bed for hours after school

Some bedrooms and a hall,

But the math book in [...]
