THOUGHTS OF A WOMAN FOR HER MAN: Poetry, by He Xun

THOUGHTS OF A WOMAN FOR HER MAN The mind goes, the body is already gone; the pins have fallen, while he is leaning on the pillow again. He would like to go, no more tears at the corners of the eyes; but he does not see, and the sadness is still a lot.

YOU ARE LIKENESS: Poetry, by Paul Eluard

YOU ARE LIKENESS   Do you lie: water unfolds. You are the water diverted by eddies, are the earth that takes root, and where everything is based do bubbles of silence in the silence of the roars.

ALL LETTERS OF LOVE: Poetry, by Fernando Pessoa

ALL LETTERS OF LOVE All love letters are ridiculous. Would not be love letters if they were not ridiculous. I also wrote in my time love letters, like the others, ridiculous. Love letters, if there is love, must be ridiculous. But after all, only those who have never written love letters are ridiculous. I wish it were still the time …

MOON: Poetry, by Hai Zi

MOON Chimney smoke up and down. The moon is a white ape digging a well. The moon is a white ape smiling wanly on the river how many times blood trickles out of the sky.

THE DINING ROOM: Poetry, by James Ingram Merrill

THE DINING ROOM Background: the dining room in Stonington. Walls with matte finish color “flame” (facetious nuance, now watermelon now sunburned skin).

MEMORIES THEY SEE ME: Poetry, by Tomas Tranströmer

MEMORIES THEY SEE ME One morning in June when it was too early but to wake up too late to go back to sleep. I have to get out in the countryside that is full memories, and follow me with his eyes.

TWO FLOWERS IN A LETTER: Poetry, by Marichiko

TWO FLOWERS IN A LETTER   Two flowers in a letter. The moon sinks into the far off hills. Dew drenches the bomboo grass. I wait. Crickets sing all night in the pine tree.
