when i am reincarnated

i am always human

or, it’s antelope, butterfly,

salamander, donkey, donkey, butterfly

in every life believing

i am always salamander

i am always butterfly


her death was not absolute

we forget she is dead

recite her words

text evidence

among survivors


i wonder

about absolute loss

when i die

i wish to mercifully

delete your memories

of me

it can only help

your happiness


imagine a grief-free

trip across the city

this platform means

nothing to me

as if the mind

has no mountains

no cliffs,

this train

never took

us anywhere

together
