Like William Blake’s work, this book fuses the Western and Eastern sensitivities.’’ —Hal Sirowitz, Former Poet Laureate of Queens, New York “In her Vision Test, Kyung-Nyun Kim Richards has captured many aspects of life, as trivial as a report card or a vision test, as common as a tree or a clam.” —Hong Ai Bai, Co-Author, A Break in Passing Clouds: Improvisations of Chinese Poems    Kyung-Nyun Kim Richards . . . unique sensibility brings forth the world of her ordinary experiences in deep and generous lyrical language. —Kwon Young-Min, Critic & Prof. of Korean Literature 128pp $15.00 paper/ISBN 978-0-89304-220-2 Publication date: April 30, 2016 Shipping: $5.00 U.S./$10.00 Foreign; add $.50/$5.00 each additional copy.

The Dark House of Hurt
Copyright © Adel Gorgy 2015 Photograph  –




Crosses and gravestones break my view.

To the left, I see you, bending

To arrange a jar of flowers;

The winter sky dulls your presence:

Charcoal figure, Van Gogh peasant.

Now kneeling, you recall a prayer.


My lack of Welsh locks out the sense;

But the grammar of sobs I know.

No priest, no poet, no actor

Could vinegar my wound like you.

You stand and gather up your things;

Then blackly walk the narrow path.


Your grief is deep – and so is mine;

Yet your strange prayer suggests that faith

Does visit your dark house of hurt.

I stare down at my child son’s grave;

I say no words to cross or stone,

As my clenched hands hold crumbs of dirt.
