john tiong chunghoo

(Jan 21,1960 / NEW YORK)

mixed three liners


winter blue
a flash of white
on taxi's top

daymoon
sounds of scissors
from impatient barber

soon
a river that wont
reflect the moon

irked by her
constant shouts
to keep children quiet

storm
the gods paint
the whole sky grey

end-of-world news
the old lady
farts

power failure
lovers in bed
unfazed

after not meeting
for 20 years, recognising him
only by his goatee

after dinner -
the upbeat children
in the field

silver wedding anniversary
the guests ask whether
their divorced son has married

clinic
against the be-quiet sign
the mother shouts at her crying child

silver wedding anniversary
divorced son gives toast to
dad as role model

cricket's shrill
our warm conversation
in the japanese pub

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
