3. a pact of silence has been made

4. walking to and from school

5. I’m selling the family home

6. that remains a mystery to me

7. you have finally reached bottom

“How Does Bamboo Ridge?” by Jean Yamasaki Toyama

With lots of hands, lots of head, lots of heart
And hours and days, and years – 30 – of time.

What did bamboo ridge?
Ninety-one issues,
Eight hundred-fifty plus writers and artists
Of poems, stories, plays, and essays
With plenty, plenty of words and some pictures,
Some photos
To launch careers
To help pass the time
To keep hope alive

Hang on, keep watch,
Plug along.
