  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
