by this poet

What is the point of travel
For a DeafBlind person
Other than the food the people the shops
And all that

Part one young
Question mother father
Know right name
Work some day


The mutant four-fingered carrot
Is in the pot and growing
Sweeter as it relaxes
Its grip


When we say good morning
In Japanese
