Sin


The man who told us
About you has been hanged
His hands handcuffed
His feet shackled
And his corpse abandoned
He lives so far
As he made the point
In every house a church
On every street a mosque
But in every heart a sin.

Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
