Tank Man

Tank Man


Here is a tank

Rumbling across a vast expanse

A square


Here is a man

White shirt

Black trousers

A shopping bag in each hand

Palm out



And the tank stops



The man alters his position


The man climbs onto the tank

Talks to those in the tank

no grain being left to pay the tax

searching for the peace deep in caves but not your mind

Bodies lost forever, frozen in the time of death. Icily cold and otherworldly ...

Then… Airplane falling wreathed in fire, ruined

bonfire dragged down by gravity to a watery grave.

Broken machine resting on the seabed, silence

reigns in Deaths’ triumph.


Now… Test Pilot Feng Yi and five of his comrades flying

air tests on red China’s brand new J11 fighter.

Saw many old planes in formation, props and je...

taiwan poems

Around and round we danced in an exotic Asian club to pounding alternative music. Who said they couldn’t party? Like it’s their, our, last night on earth. Little did we all know that this prophecy was true? One night if fun with a Taiwanese lady, only dancing you understand. They are not like western ladies. On and on we danced feeling alive, when we kissed it was like fire of t...
