City Poems: Beijing

Almost…like ducking Around an infected scrape
not wanting to---Provoke. Ah, that is the Word.
Deeper understandings come in Eastern Cities.

the Massacres, the shrouded Worlds---
how ARE the rest of us to glimpse New Worlds?
Even when the News Coverage assaults cultural Privacy
nothing in Gold silk embroidery or embossed Open Doors Transcends

Behind every perception is a Story.
every Dragon every Sparrow or Figure
intimates Some connecting Factor.
Just in Case we forget that there Must Be.
in case we Realize that "CCP" and all
negates Nothing. We have much in Common
given any True Attempt. "CCP" or whatnot…Political Trends change
