Tao of the Day  
With their teeth bared,
two brothers stand
poised with their saws
to claim the prize
the judge awards.

With shouts they cut
the beams that span
their father's house.
Malachite tiles
explode in shards.

One brother wants
bedrooms and roof,
the other gloats
that he will keep
the family grounds.

They stand in piles
of splintered wood.
The brothers stare,
and each declares,
"This house is mine!"

Hey. Can you recommend a good seafood place in Seattle? My father is going there, or else has someone go there; his missive was unclear on that, but the demand for info was unmistakable.

Not too posh (expensive), but needs to be the real thing.
