Best Poem of Barry Conway

Tanxi Furen (Lady Of Sighs)

TANXI FUREN (LADY OF SIGHS)

HER NAME WAS TANXI FUREN
I PROFESSED MY LOVE FOR HER
BUT LOVE
WAS NOT ENOUGH.
THIS WAS THE TATTOOED LADY
OF MY YOUTH
WHEN LOVE, BEFORE IT GOT LOST,
WAS THE WAY.

THE ANSWER
WAS NOT LOVE ALONE
IT LAID
DISPLAYED
IN HER TATTOO OF SIGHS
WHEREIN LIES
THE ANSWER.
SO I TURNED HER
LEARNED, HER SECRETS
READ FROM THE SCRIPT OF LIVES.
WORD BY WORD
EACH SIGH FLOATED AWAY
ON A STREAM OF LIGHT
TO FORM NEW WORDS
ON HER BODY.
EACH PASSAGE
PASSED INTO NOW,
FOR AS I READ
SHE BECAME ...

A Catered Affair

A CATERED AFFAIR

HE OPENED
WITH A CLOSING LINE
‘IT'S OVER'

HER EYES IMPLORED HIM
TO TAKE BACK
THE POISON OF HIS WORDS
