WHERE LOVE HAS EXPIRED By Helen, age 8 & Lily, age 9




















Where Love Has Expired
By Lily Nguyen & Helen Luu

my inky finger
rubs
one sentence
at a time
and now
the paragraphs
are ruined.
Filthy.
Or maybe
the smudge
is a
cloud

What Is Missing by the Kids in Room 2


























What Is Missing

The "No Kids Allowed" sign,
the eight ball,
light from a lamp,
a ticking clock,

The boy's shadow,
his smile,
his glasses
because he stepped on them,
his body,
the pool cue,
probably a bar,
a glass of Tsing Tao
an altar to a great-great-great,
the other shoe,
a few arms,
the line
in a rainbow
where red meets orange,
noise
