I am over you

but not if Id walk by Ching Kiang Street,
or whenever Id see
the unique architecture of the Chinese Temple.
Not when I know I still could peek
beneath the jaquette of my address book,
your photograph fastened there.

I am over you,

or almost;

at least
I am near
the apogee of my sentiments
over misplacing you to the opacity
of Ching Kiangs purlieus.

I am over you,

though, only


crystal face I kiss
tongue tastes like sweet cold rain
I fall into pond

Ching Kiang
"but", "if", "only" and "almost", the whole poem hangs gracefully from these words... the particulars are beautiful, the sentiment universal. we all know that "almost". gorgeous poem. glad I came here today.

Intangible Emotion
This poem really pulled at my heartstrings, especially since I am now working on a novel that has a theme of moving on with change.

The words and imagery you use in this poem is very tangible, yet the message of it reaches out to one of the most intangible human emotions of all-an awesome irony indeed.
