by George Freek

(After OU YANG HSIU)

Clouds soft as pillows
smother the moon.
My clock ticks like an
incessant toothache.
I sit beside the river.
All night I hear waves
beat the shore, as if
it were a door,
they wanted to open.
A bird shrieks from
pain or from fear.
I’m now over seventy.
I have no idea how
I got here.
