A Thousand Years’ Deep - Poem by Catherine Yen

A Thousand Years’ Deep
Open the envelope
Seeing a row of teeth
My son’s hand
Playing on it
Play Dali
Play Lorca
Play Martha Argerich
Flying in the air
Ten fingers and cat and red wine cup

CN tower, the blue light and shadow
Sweeping over the white pillar of building
Sunset of Lake Ontario
Dyeing the snowflake red
Interwove the shadow and mirror
Rushing down from the forty one floors
Suppressing the small body
Cannot look up

Teeth falling
Keyboard collapsed
Yearning….
The envelope closed
Gently kissed
Fluctuating the lake a thousand years’ deep

    Very Deep And Really Got Into The Part..

    Teeth falling
    Keyboard collapsed
    Yearning….
    The envelope closed
    Gently kissed
    Fluctuating the lake a thousand years’ deep
