                                                            like an old belt,
                                                            he says,
                                                            like my arms around him
                                                            doesn't cut or cinch
                                                                                  Genie Nakano, originally Published in Storyteller, 2014

I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.
