Poem of the Week

Porcelain Chinese Figures

The glass case of elaborate
porcelain Chinese figures
displayed no pretentiousness.
The slender figure in a pink cheongsam
served tea to her master
the emperor who was previously
entertained by five seagulls
dancing on a jasmine bush
laughed as one of his court cats
to catch them.
