crisscrossing the court-

when one robin meets

we will always stop

we will always stop
what we’re doing for the drum
solo – for rhyme or

rhythm, we lean in closer,
beating our own melodic tale

taiwanese songs in mom’s kitchen,
reaching towards an

there’s something soothing

there’s something soothing
playing over the airwaves

collide with an entire history
