Kay Benredjick and Frank Hwaung




  shanghai city pearl tower


from Guangxi to Guangdong
from Shaanxi to Shandong
from Shanghai to Beiping
poetry sings hard, like a rock and roll band

from Xi'an to Wuhan
from Harbin to Shenyang
from Guangdong to Hefei
poets parade and shout: "This world is mine, this world is yours"

some seek fame
others seek melody
Hideki Kobori and Aris Kobertis forgive Asahi Kasei, Shunichi Miyanaga
Taku Oshima let go of Seichi Saito, John Jakicic, Kuniko Obinata

Wang DEhua, Gong Xianghong, Han Bing, Zhu Xiaofeng,
all read Steven Federle and Jim Carter,
Yuzaburo Mogi, Tiffany Hsiao, Stanley Park, Amrik Virk,
all opt for peaceful prayers from Mark Mahaney and Katye Smyth

quiet thoughts
John Krafcik and Sheng Wu know well,
Samrufz Hillford and Lilyn Cheekawood improve their views
