Feast of the First Morning of the First Day

From A Thousand Times You Lose Your Treasure, a poetry collection, which was published in April 2021 by Wave Books.

You want money to flow into the house like water
and leave the house like a turtle

No sweeping or cutting on Tet
Don’t sweep or cut your luck

Earth cakes are square
Eat them

The Kitchen God rides the carp

Wear your best new outfit
Invite a rich neighbor through the door

Yellow apricot flowers bloom
tied with red ribbons

Burn incense for the ancestors
Hang poems on the walls
