Do you hear my stomach?
It’s been – I’ve been – too busy.
I was once a compassionate
lover.   Now I take all I can
and never use anything.
To use is to lose.
Finally the snow
has melted away.   Then
to the Chinese New Year’s
parade in the rain.   What
comes of such severe
humiliation?   A
coffin in the end,
to be sure.   So off
we go, two dots
in the massive
anti-war demonstration.
Precious.   What’s
won at the lottery
goes to the purchase
of a new webcam.
