Treasure Island

john tiong chunghoo

(Jan 21,1960 / NEW YORK)

Japanese short forms 2


window shopping
a child twists to three
mannequins in dance pause

a poultry-chasing dog
given to a friend who
ends it in his pot

what a delight
those windswept
scarlet leaves!

time really has flown
since she threw
her clock at me

another world
a librarian reads
with feet on chair

mom to daughter
for interview: smile to them
like Mona Lisa

fengshui craze
wonder i'm shitting
in the right direction

calling someone
half his age dad
the prize: he marries his daughter

mom's happier times
her stilletto lying sideway
by the verandah

Asian coffeeshops
the toughtest to manage -
the toilets
