Coffee and Tea 鴛鴦偶寄
by Holly Lee
(response in photograph by Lee Ka-sing)


At Seventy-five

You are just ten years
and two months
ahead
in the year I turn senior
now we can talk
woman to woman
a friend said
I am more than a
die-hard fan
but all I want is
to hold your hand
we don't have to talk

You dive off the rock
into black water
you swim with the mink
play ping pong with panda
suddenly burst out
a big laughter
drive a yellow taxi
hop on a cloud
chat with your neighbour
this is heaven
why wait until next life
you wonder

No fate could trip you
no illness could harm
your adroit big hands
destined to venture
test, and cross
new frontier
opening tunings
heart and mind
music and words
living and feeding each other
and they can never be hurt
by popularity and profit monger

You are just ten years
and two months
ahead
in the year I turn senior
we can talk
woman to woman
you ain't no saint
but I love you anyways
dear friend
you have tried so hard
and given so much
I am listening

Bad dreams
great plan
you fell off the rock
into black water
deep sea, bioluminous
howling and glowing
under five hundred metres
you come back with a new hat
cowgirl, Indian look and all that
your little light shine
through your eyes, years
and tears

Tabletop Studio
by Gary Michael Dault

No. 185. Gigantic Berlioz. He needed a break from tilling the visual fields and felt that a limited sojourn in music might be restorative. To that end, he decided he would try to learn the music of the French arch-romantic composer, Hector Berlioz (1803-1869). The pursuit swiftly turned from a dalliance into something close to an obsession. He hadn't known much of Berlioz's music--just the Roman Carnival Overture and the infamous and inescapable Symphonie Fantastique--but he now intended to learn it all, even the composer's almost indigestible opera, Les Troyens (The Trojans)--which was eight acts long in its original incarnation..

#124--A pair of equal and parallel forces acting in different directions

Balance

a hurricane’s
heavier disorder
offers
a vast figure
representing
runaway force

against which

I proudly hold up
my small white horse
as if it were a sharp gale
blowing the opposite way
