The Sign

The Sign

Drop by drop
My brain
Assimilates rain

Second by second
This sunset falls
Into void

Love by love
My life
Pass by

To do what?
Not a single clue
Nor a sign

Like a big brown butterfly
A fragile winged falcon
Fly away

This slow afternoon
That dies behind
A curtain of far high rain

My name is Li Tao Po
I’m writing this
Today Saturday, August 23, 2014

To my brother Edgar
Happy birthday
My friend

May this multiverse
Have enough time
For you and me

Happily fish
Some day again


Aquatic world

Aquatic world

Passing through me
Clouds bring moisture
To this thirsty world

Rivers take it away
To the sea
-I really do hope so

Not a single drink
Can bring me
This thirsty Saturday morning

The sense of love
Like a round woman
I did know

Heavy with feelings
About cubs & dugouts
Hubs& sons

Her multiverse
Plagued with wormholes
Ending back in this world

And the hand of
A beloved boy
I’m the guilty author

But I’m like the Greek guy
Of the Odysseus movie
-I did see it three times

No matter where you going
O where you come from
At all

It’s just Curiosity
What matters the most
When sun goes up

Clouds are making round hats
Like H-Bombs
Above mountain tops

While I’m writing this
This thirsty Saturday
Far away from the known God

Rainy Saturday

Rainy Saturday

Farmers and children know
To do what the rain is good for
But I don’t know

I’m trapped by the rain
Alone in my house
Can’t go out to the side of my dame

Please milky sky
Take out your clouds
Out of the city to the farms

Because I’m too old now
To take a shower in the rain
To play games with water again

Because the rain over this town
Is so redundant
As it is over the ocean

And as wasted and useless
As this stupid “poem”
And a tear in the fields of war
