poems by Changming Yuan

[fissuring]

 

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

 

 

 

[pomegranate]

 

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
