  9453.     

On the other hand

You are no less than anyone, you are more than anybody
You are special; you have the right to be given a name yourself

You have the right to be

And so when you let go these thousand poems of yours
In the sea of ideas like atoms in a limitless sky in a limitless space

Be there. Try Floating in there and see a single word from one of the thousand poems you made
They all call your name

I am yours you made me and I have become significant I have become special
Because of you.

  9454.     

on the other hand he calls it the thousand monkeys

on the thousandth
monkey
you shout
o my god
i made it!

the monkey
hangs and shifts
place from
vine to vine

jumps on the river
and swims
finds a fish
and eats it
rises from the river
and dances on
a rock
under the morning
sun

quite exciting
the other monkeys
did the same

except for one
he sits by the window
watches the running of
time
dust after dust
dusk after dusk
waiting for
the big break of
his own life.

  9455.     

on the other side of this equation

beyond poetry
do not think of something
deep and mysterious

it is this ordinariness of our
everyday life
that comes after

i am finished with the last
poem for tonight
i will be watching the evening news
as i sit on an old hard wood
chair reserved just for me
as i start opening my plate
and wipe my spoon and fork
with this soft white cloth
on a menu of soft rice and
unsalted fish and green
leafy ferns heavily spiced
with onion and red ripe tomatoes

beyond poetry is this eating
this dinner and this listening
to the happenings of events
around us, this comments of

tsk tsk tsk
and u huh. and what the hell
is happening to this country?

this waste of lives and waste
of so much time on matters
of injustice and defrauding
and blinding and shutting
and shouting and shooting

after this dinner i may read
some poems again and even
write some more, but it is
getting late, and the door
is locked and the windows
are all closed and the wind
has come with a stronger rain

earlier this time, i have decided
to sleep and stop minding what
is happening to my surrounding.

beyond poetry, too, is rest.

on the other side...

defrosted trees
melting ice

sunny waters
silvery river

Asian tripping
Tipsy.
