You could have a big dipper   

rice spills from our hair and clothes by Kiik Araki-Kawaguchi



For Janet



Rice spills from our hair and clothes


Our ceiling leaks the rice grows fat


Our children spring open before our eyes might close


We cover their candles in fat and fire


And that waxwing takes what is left of my rose


Carry my salt and salt the pasture


Those birds rose to collect the bread we broke


That thrush eats my name from the ear of my lover
