LUNAR NEW YEAR, VIRUS IS HERE

Standing at the intersection,
all four roads empty without any person.
Bus 846 comes along,
but there is only
the driver and one single passenger.
Wah, that one has booked the whole bus.

Now there comes another one,
it’s a #3.
It has only the driver.
Ai-uh, this time there is no-one at all
who could do the booking.

NO ORDER, NO BOOKING

Chang’an Poesie-Festival
Mid-Autumn Moon Festival time
Mrs. Zhang, wife of the Australian poet
Zhang Lizhong
reads out her poem,
afterwards she doesn’t understand what Yi Sha says
and asks him over the table:
„Did you say
my poem’s not good,
we don’t order food,
and something else,
what was that?
Poets are smiling, someone corrects her:
„He said not booked for NPC,
we’ll still order food.“
Moon Festival,
friends come from afar,
food has to be booked.
