Night Walkers

Genie Nakano

at night

walking my dog

a towering shadow

looms over me

my heart beats against my ribs

I can’t breathe

I can’t scream

the shadow grows

Voluminous

I will fight–I will die fighting!!!

I TURN–

It’s my own shadow

Asians attacked and brutally beaten

New York — California–all over our country.

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.
