Some of the poems in Only a Friend Can Know appeared in two books of mine: The Rainshadow, Empty Bowl Books, Port Townsend, 1983; and The Basin: Life in a Chinese Province, Empty Bowl Books, Port Townsend, 1988.

Some uncollected poems or translations, have appeared in Longhouse and The Chicago Review. Pleasure Boat Studio published a broadside of Sakura.  * I gratefully acknowledge and thank each editor and publisher.
