"Summer: Three Poems"

Summer: Three Poems 

The man starts stripping upon arrival in the room
     and I feel something has gone wrong

               Hayashi Amari

Though he rises to his full height, I am taller by an inch.
     He does not come back for a second kiss.

On the train I look away after catching his eye.
     He gets off without giving me another look.

He is putting away his laundry when I arrive.
     Let’s get on with it, closing his drawers.
