February and June

Two Poems from 2007

Febr. 13 (For those who have never seen rain)

time difference carrying luggage going into the rainbow

the travellers the sleepy-heads

the cats in thailand fishing folk in shanxi

corpses in books female warriors coming up

seven o’clock in the morning darkness leaving these faces

they all have their names

in their passports in the papers

new babies awaken accordeons destroying a jail

taipei raindrops dancing calling me back

Febr. 13th, 2007

June 28

they all flew away from the moma development

over xidan over tanggu over berlin and cologne

it rained on the way bird flu broke out peach blossoms fell

stock market softly extinguished babies were born

central station capetown tea hawkers taking the lift

dusk finally changing into the night

they closed down lufthansa center the workers’ stadium

bombed olympic park they did it for love

but for the sleepless heart but jardin du luxembourg

but butterflies flying on lantau over the temple of heaven

but hashish bees helicopters took them away

all of urumqi changed into a park

finally changing into the night and they sighed

they changed into her they love her they flew

into another dream
