Coffee and Tea 鴛鴦偶寄
by Holly Lee


Istanbul


III : Ferry Boat Ride

Didn't someone say
memory of you
is
water
water water

Gulping from all sides
you
sometimes caress
most times
pound

Tar black, organic
wobbling chocolate jelly
you invite me to
scoop
a spoonful

Endless shorelines
surprise after surprise
turn
another bay appears
another pier

Mouth got salty
hair got knots
are you
Golden Horn,
Bosphorus or Marmara?

Or, you are
Golden Horseshoe
Hong Kong harbour
how different
is your water?

Videos, photographs
taste air and breathe water
another turn
I'll arrive home
from afar

Throw bread in the air
seagulls circling
this distance
so close
so far

(Ups & Downs of a Brick Wall)

#128: Ups & Downs of a Brick Wall

Piercings

All you poets
who pass along
aren’t you ashamed?
our poems end up
on perfumed blue paper

We live in cubbyholes of light
feeding wind-up birds
handfuls of organic cereal
once in a while a soft word

Our encounters are forced
brittle shadows of flying spears
pinning us to rumpled walls

I wander lonely as a shroud
that floats too low
over the streets
I don’t know about you
but I need a draft
of spiky blue ink
so thin I cannot feel it
when it pierces my parchment

No. 189. The Scissors of Damocles. Alright they didn't dangle over his head, but they were stacked against him: it was going to be ennui by a thousand cuts.
