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.

ACCIDENT

I hear
one year
one month
one day
one
mo-
ment
when
a small bird in flight
and a HARMONY bullet train
hit each other
glass “blossomed in shards” at the front of the train
they did an emergency stop for 20 minutes
the bird’s blood, according to passengers
splattered all over the shattered glass
in a beautiful pattern
