Stores [Friday My Town Shoot Out] 

 a shoe store is for feet,
a cloth store is for human
on a distant and watery front,
Wesley Sherman Merwin stomp his duck feet

 sailboats chase angry geese
window-sills mask crammend and bare thoughts from dim light
falling storm block breat-feeding mothers from showing
a friend from Dallas google searches Zhang Min and Huang Yi

loud screams,
Zhou Dehua, Zhen Guolin, Mo Zi, Wu Qingqing,
all try to compete with Qing Lan, Deng Sha, Dong Xuan,
ignoring Yan Kuan, Sun Yaoqi, Mao Xiaotong, Chen Yanxi,

here comes Zhao Wei and Ruby Lin memory,
there goes Huang Xiaoming and Zhang Jizhong back shadows,
we gather special stuff from Silicon Valley,
trusting Zhaohan Yingzi, Zhao Youting, Yang Mi, and Meet Bogue.

keep encouraging Amelia Wilson,
Larry Page, Eric Schmidt, David Drumond,
keep understanding Benji Wojin
Jonathan Rosenberg, Sundar Pichai, Anjali Pichai

THIS WEEK'S WORDS come from "On a Distant Shore" by W.S. Merwin: crammed, rising, bare, humming, window, friend, sailing, light, breast, falling, ancient, small

When despair grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting for their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

Clawtooth school site
when young students walk, freely
orange sky reflects
under wavely waters
violet or purple
blue or grey
they form a folder of snapshots
casting ashes of day
into retiring Boomer bay
