Sushi Grass in Paradise (a story)
by Holly Lee

(31) Disco Nation

It was a gloomy rainy day when Violet dropped by to pick up something from the library. She forgot to bring the room key so Mrs. Bento walked her up to the third floor.

Number 2: Dog Barking at the Moon

I felt an unruly dog was dragon enough and wrote this poem, after a painting by Joan Miro from 1926 called "Dog Barking at the Moon."

dog of mine
legs like pencils
stands barking
at the lantern moon
hanging low
over the lawn
like a pinata

I'm sitting
on the veranda
sipping my black tea
thinking about
curtailing the dog
or breaking off a branch
to whack the moon with

anything for some quiet
this used to be
a silent street
until it got a moon
of its own
and I took on
this frantic, upturned dog

Seven Duets a Week

Lee Ka-sing began his diptych project in 2014. Over the years, more than a thousand diptychs were created. He describes the project as spontaneously as brush strokes on the pages of a sketchbook, or, a poem written daily. He calls these juxtaposition diptychs DUETS.

SEVEN DUETS A WEEK, is a weekly compiled inbox publication, with selection from his new and earlier diptychs. These diptych photographs, are also available as open editions in the format of 6.25 x 13 inches each.
