She Take Mushrooms photo

my family and I moved 
from Japan to America
and found solace 
in hunting mushrooms  

the kind we sought 
are called matsu-take
the highest grade
selling for a grand per kilo 

I do what the samurai did
for the love

hunting what grows 
from tree roots, 
forming a partnership 

my hands hold
what belongs 
to its own 

kept and pursued
in the original 
gaming system

the creator 
calls it an experiment

we jump
with our fists raised 
to break what’s above, 
and growing rapidly
