Poetry by Eriko.

From the article –  And below an excerpt:

” from the Japanese writer Eriko Tsugawa-Madden, which opens:

I learned to count when I was four.

I counted dead fisherman

Lined up on the sandy shore

Covered with straw mats.

Ichi..Ni..San..Shi . . .

Though not literally about the immigrant experience, his [sic: should be ‘her’!]  poem Typhoon is about the world we can all inhabit in our imaginations, and evinces a commendably outward view:

I could count big numbers.

Pity there were only four.

I counted them

Like the shadows of fencepost

I used to pass on the sandy hill. ”

Report by Gerald Dawe in the Sunday Business Post last weekend about the book ‘Landing places’.”




Turns out different breeds of hen produce different coloured shells!
