*great Wall In China - Poem by Rommel Mark Dominguez Marchan

I have seen the brick wall
face to face
the ancient hollowblocks sprawled
against an embankment
with roof blown open
for enemies watchful rivalry eye
for paid spectator's sight seeing

your dynasty dividing the world
into half literally
a concrete - walled serpent
cutting the outer crust margin

wherever I look at your spine
I see you are wrapped in old centuries
fashion cloth
dressed with moss and chinese
character algae medicines

cunning and boastful
you shield your grandfather
warrior's glorious times
preserving against evil invaders
with your symbolic incense in your unfold shoulders
with fun shui ritual in your rooted feet
your face remains as calendar cover
with 12 month full pages hunging in the wall
as great as the entire 2009th year
