Last Night - Poem by Li Ching Chao

Last
night
thin
rain,
gusty
wind.

Dense
sleep
doesn't
fade
a wine
hangover.

I'm talking
to her
who
rolled up
the curtains.

Are you
blind!
I
say.

By now
they're
fat
green
and skimpy
red.

    A reminder comes to us through the mist of time that human customs may change, but humanity does not. (Report) Reply
