Wild Grass on the Riverbank, 2015) is a book-length narrative poem which
describes the life of a family hurtling back and forth across the Pacific, told from
the point of view of an adolescent female narrator. In it, Itō borrows lyrics of pop
songs, children's jump-rope songs, passages from books on plants, as well as

Hiromi Ito's Wild Grass on the Riverbank came from Action Books in an envelope,
like a block of cocaine. How the “rushes”: a vegetal complex of grasses: might
start bleeding beneath their legs or from their seams. “... the grasses growing in
the wasteland bloomed with yellow flowers, but the flowers quickly wilted and
became red, the clusters of rushes on the riverbank still had not gone into heat ...”

Everyone stopped playing to look for the ball lost in the tall grass and weeds that
lined the riverbank. Stephen and Henry went over to help, too. After about ten
minutes, the ball was found and the game resumed. Henry and Stephen
continued walking along the riverbank and, every so often, bent over to pick up a
stone to throw at something floating by in the river. At length, they arrived at the
town's cemetery. It was laid out with perfectly curved walkways and totaled over
an acre in size.

The sound of them eating and drinking slowed over to us like water. The
Physician looked and calmly remarked, “They are eating human flesh. Seven
days of sandstorms have buried all of the wild grass along the riverbank, to the
point that no one can find any roots to eat." As she was saying this, the Physician
added some kindling to the fire, and after placing her porcelain bowl over the
flames, she lay down and began fanning them, acting as though we weren't even
standing there.

Clumps of weeds and wild grass dotted the muddy riverbank where the earth was
once a paradise green. Richard Broering, and his wife, Donna, sat on the barren
ground staring at their rods and reels. It would have been a perfect day for fishing
had they not brought their kids with them! At least that was Richard's thoughts.
The couple had a nine-year-old boy, Bobby, and a sevenyear-old girl, Janet. The
two children were running up and down the river bank, throwing rocks in the

Also, the use of green grass covering the old riverbank reminds readers of the
poem "Yin-ma Ch'ang- ch'eng k'u hang" $XM,Mi&Wi7 (Lines on Letting My Horse
Drink at the Waterhole by the Great Wall) by Ts'ai Yung HSi (133-192)* of the
Eastern Han, which begins with: "Green is the grass by the riverbank, / Never
ending I think of the distant one." The parallel between the flourishing wild grass
and the never-ending thoughts of the loved one appears repeatedly in traditional

Then she remembered the path to the riverbank. Danny wasn't supposed to go
there alone. She'd gone there with him when Matt had been with them. Feeling
betrayed, angry, maybe rebellious...would he disobey his father? Acting on
instinct, she turned in that direction. The elevated riverbank was surrounded by
trees, wild grass and dense scrub brush. She could only drive the small rental car
to the edge of the vegetation. Then she set out on foot. And as she walked she
