Two Senryu 川柳

D. Brink 2007

In cutting the grass the people
   in spring see to the future


In a field of thistles the ferns
    gradually find their way

[Thanks to Huang Shih-Yi for the Mandarin translations
and David Jiang for help with transcultural imagery.]

Mister Coffee

Mister Coffee
is a flash sf story I wrote--set in Taiwan--and appearing in Every Day Fiction. It's about a mother, daughter and their robot as they struggle to keep their business going. The comments on the site are very interesting too; thanks for the feedback.

12 Tone Tango for Two

12 Tone Tango for Two (opens audio in new window)
