Lists

My Clichéd Apartment
White walls, wood floor, Spartan furnishing
          A mattress, a table, a plastic chair
Dim light, incense, ambience music
          Red, smoke, plucked hearts pattering rain
Books, beads, a yoga mat
          Unread, strung high, lied on all afternoon
Milk tea, oatmeal, assorted nuts
          One mug, one plate, one bowl for soup
          A spoon, a fork, a knife

My Mother’s Voice
Clean your room, make up your bed, take care not to scrape the wooden floor
Wash your own delicates and hang them like flags from the ceiling to dry
Fold your clothes, nice-smelling and neat, into the closet, close the door
Pour boiling water down the kitchen sink, pick up hairs clogging the bathroom drain
Eat your meals on time, don’t walk the streets at night
Shut the window against peeping toms, against the wind and rain
Text me when you get home, which home, what home

The Songs I Listen to These Days
They sound like sighing, though they’re all string
All stars to black holes lost

December
Warmth-Cold
Light-Dark
Companionship-Solitude
Activity-Rumination
Binge-Purge
