poems by Changming Yuan



Between two high notes

The song gives a crack

Long enough

To allow me to enter

Like a fish jumping back

Into the night water


Both the fish and I leave no

Trace behind us, and the world

Remains undisturbed as we swim

Deeper and deeper in blue silence


Upon my return, I find the music

Still going on, while the fish has

Disappeared into the unknown






As long as you have ample blood

Filling in your cells, your heart

Will never fade

Within your fine structure


A rosy inner being:

Each sarcotesta is inflated

With juicy passion
