O Captain! My Captain! - Poem by john tiong chunghoo


sea death
a bouquet of roses
washed ashore


missing sea death
his cloth waves triumphantly
on the boat
in all our hearts
he is there

(a chinese style in getting
to find a man lost at sea
hang his shirt on the sail
and his soul would come
sooner or later)
