Sesshu Foster on Amy Uyematsu

Wednesday, June 28, 2023 — 5:00 p.m.

This morning’s edition of the L.A. Times contained a column by Sesshu Foster, one of this city’s most incisive poets, in which he pays tribute to Amy Uyematsu. It is the best thing I have read about her in the days since her passing, and so I am posting the link to it with the hope that those of you who don’t tend to read the L.A. Times will learn of it.

(This photograph taken on Ohio Avenue in Long Beach, June 20, 2023, three days before Amy’s passing. Let the burgeoning blossoms of two of L.A. best-known plants serve as my floral offering to her passage.)
