Poem of the Day: Dream of Ink Brush Calligraphy
February 28th, 2013 by Aldouspi

In prayer:
quiet opening,
my artery is a thin    
shadow on paper—
margin of long grass,
ruderal hair, sister to this
not yet part of our bodies
your lyric corpus of seed
in rough drafts of pine ash,
chaogao or grass calligraphy  
in rough drafts of pine ash—
your lyric corpus of seed
not yet part of our bodies:
ruderal hair, sister to this  
margin of long grass,
shadow on paper,
my artery is a thin
quiet opening
in prayer.
