Kathup Tsering

Rookie (1979 / Northern estern Tibet)

In this life I saw

a man
devoid of limps
lying on the ground
a headless horse
its hair bristled
for fear of the wind
in this life I saw.

a soldier
dead in the battlefield
a broken gun upon his head
a gun
that fell him down
in this life I saw.

a child
struggled across the snow-mountains
left his parent back home
over the snowy pass
he lost his toes
in this life I saw

    Kathup, you've exposed very tortuous and troubled images, sights that should never be seen by anyone... difficult to even comprehend by most of the world.
