Truthing Fire And Ice - Poem by Nyein Way

wrestling, understanding, domaining knowledge and truthing 'ma' time in sumo fighting, not to be injured on both sides
we are learning a new language without bounds
harnessing the oldsteps of surviving skills mixed with diligent fears of trust
clapping sounds of misunderstandings as understanding is so boring
giving advice to colonial territory-minded lost identity
skins are being brittle
in time of war and pretension of persona in inferiority-simplicity-stricken open secrets
still remaining silent and seem to be patrolled by old good habits
laughing big like a hell
intruding the zone of unknown business impossibility
philosophy is nothing
philosophy is something if there is no language
playing golf inthe open field of humanity
fire and ice
