winter is now

baring it all

 

in its unloving look

convenience is not square

but plural

 

to translate is to be always

chronologically challenged

 

there is fero

city in the feel

 

of the after

noon sun

 

the green bay but

an illusion from youth

 

that is youth

less

 

as every day turns

every night

 

 

 

D

 

The day is wide

Awake now

 

Camera lens milk

Skin of haze sings

 

Vision is a vanity

That invades

 

In the heart of the morning

Sleep sinks

 

A car horn

Rainstorm of wheels churning out

 

Unreadable papers

Singing, off singing

 

Rust breaks

Light penetrates, portrays the

 

Darkest pore

A word dream born

 

As it disappears

On the point of a drop

 

 

 

H

 

Homeless at home

A place rented for its emptiness

In a country, long

Devoid of the pure

Blue, that has only graves

To visit or jump

Into

Still one of the most unsuccessful

Winds that dumps its own

Poetry on the head

Ha, you spent days chasing

After the unchasable

Why bother, y bother at

All, according to H

Yiyi? Something you attach

To death that entitles you

To say anything

You like

Because of the inherent

Reticence

 

 

 

O

 

Possibly for ophidian

Not for oil, not that oil

Published years ago

Oh is for enemies

Unlike ah

You know that

In a pom

In the O of a V

The O of a G

The O of a D

Oops

Spooks

Connoisseur of con

The animal of a poet

Given to eating, drinking and smoking

Like nothing that can be compared

With a like

After the winning

O stuck on

A fish

Bone

Ochlocracy of beauty

And cosmeticized beauty

Bowel movements of a decayed

Mind

An arriviste that sings of sin

Stained lushness

Of life

O, what a saga

Or gaga

 

 

 

P

 

Pretzels are steel

That art consumes

With figures dipped

In the hydrofluoric

That is ice

Green or eye blue

Or crotch cool

Or cruel

Guoyin, very guoyin

Diffused against all the

Odds, ends and dints

A sharp energy wanders the

World, to the amazement of ants

And sands

Presence、immanence、permanence

Noodles of steel

Grains of glass

The epicene opera

Featuring a singing half

Mouth drunk with steel

Water on killer heel

Talons, so consuming

A primitive

Notes of heart

Throbs, flesh flowing
