[Poem] Tiger Penned At Kouangsi Falls

roars like an orphan
         her dreams flooded with running water
ambles her cool square
ready to ambush giant grasshoppers
who rub their legs to smile

at night, she’s just shadow
and a dying pyre.

above, a mango hangs his head,
an impotent heart filled with murder.

From On The Other Side Of The Eye, 2007

February 22nd is the birthday of Hugo Ball, a founder of DaDa.

It's a very fascinating structure here, one images running into the next and becoming something entirely different, the whole of it a collage evoking something sad, I think.

Well done.
