Baxia: The Thunder Dragon

Bestow situations upon all gleaners

Award senior citizen’s their watches

In a haze of wired cathedrals

a misguided cube of heroine

reaches for the bin of stored

arms and a small cotton ball

it is the space left by an object when it is missed

that renders space negative as a spectacular lapse

of judgment visually, emotionally and spiritually

When the god of literature

was taken prisoner, it was

Lei Jen Zu who went to his

father, Thunder Dragon;

He gave him magic apricots

that would transform him

into a green horned dragon

As a dragon Lei Jen Zu saves

Robert Creeley for him to write,

in the eyes of time, the world is

an endless cycle of limitations.
