when I see

the moon

over China


I cannot help

but recall


the lost life of Li Po


the drunken poet

drowning in a pond


the empty boat

a vacant afterthought

made more

buoyant by the absence

of the thinker

at the oars


how lonesome the light

without us


how dark

those brilliant beams



The Empty Boat
