Tang Xin

Overcast afternoon hot & clingy no wind
a poet comes out of the subway gets on his bicycle
bag on his back with waterflask right on time
appears in the bookstore in the outskirts sits down
with a band of readers around a table a female student
from a media college does the mc women
and children young men smiles
on their faces one after the other reads from a yearbook
of colloquial poetry other customers passing
will probably think a religious circle

So can he be called a missionary
don’t be too optimistic to propagate poetry these years
is actually harder than spreading the gospel
