3 Haiku from Mary Oishi–100 Thousand Poets for Change Reading

after hearing about Julia Chen, a haiku

cut more than eyes when
she cut epicanthic folds
ancestors bleeding

(Rock Paper Scissors, Swimming With Elephants 2018)

morning moon hangs faint
in a periwinkle sky
yesterday lingers

(unpublished)

The Least of These

Jesus cries himself
to sleep on the floor of a
Walmart in Brownsville

(Fixed And Free Poetry Anthology 2018)
