Jixin Gao

Rookie (Singapore)

Chase - Poem by Jixin Gao

Like the monotone dialling sounds of the phone
Being drawn in and out

For an answer

Into the lives of others
Slowly, undetected

Oh! How the chase
Ended up in vain
And smoke

Smoking l'l chimneys
of CO2

and stomping
and mouthing the words-

Why don't you answer?
Why don't you answer?

And there went-
the monotone sound
in the receiver.
