And everywhere

“And everwhere
in quiet graveyards
the dead will bury the living
and you will tell me you love me
tonight at noon.”
   -Adrian Henri
Chinese caligraphy ,
she insisted,
had individuality expressed
in a particular brush stroke
but however
the ink turned paper
to black,
a face erased,
but a Chinese woman
recorded her dreams
chasing away Chinese characters
a tall thin man held his tall thin woman
watching in silence poetry
it was like all those months starving at the  feast
you were,
why ?
