I Will Try To Write A Poem Like Li Po - Poem by RIC BASTASA

i will write the poem like Li Po

a poem that does not need an axe

to break a coconut to eat the meat

it will just need your soft hands

to cut half the water apple *

and so easily you will hand it to your mouth

to quench your thirst & savor its watery flavor

the seeds are not even necessary

to be kept

you simply throw them away

for the next season of summer.
