It’s World Poetry Day! In honor of the event, I decided to compose a quick new poem. Hope you enjoy!
LIFE AND DEATH IN A CHINESE SUPERMARKET
With the ritual grace of a suicide, I come home
To salted jellyfish and mountain
Tea cake, operatic warblings and
A Western Food aisle. I’ve come
To miss it, even the fish
Cramped as menstrual legs, in death rows.
