living forever
yao feng (yao jing ming)

                        (trans. christopher ‘kit’ kelen and hilda tam)

from Hong Kong to São Paulo, a long journey
the plane, big bird sharp claws removed
flies forever in the starry night

I am imprisoned in the sky
asleep awake
wings seem to grow on me
I keep on flying, I won’t ever land
not even crash

so terrible, as if living forever


from Poetry Macao
