A Dashushu Poem

Thanks For Listening

In fact I was 
sitting opposite you
you looked good
even if I did not

I didn’t know whether
to let the sand castle fall
or to honor the tide
like a fresh horse

I don’t know how you
can be so brave already abandoned
I am desperate over the death of you
I will get over it

Everyday I wonder about
peace love and understanding
I don’t know how
there is any relief from pain

I don’t understand the
flow of tears
into the sea
or how the wind and rain are cousins

Actually I am glad
that we are so distant
I’m really trying
to listen carefully.
