li bai
carlos marreiros

Chinese ink the colour of night
vagabond on rice coloured paper
 
so much wine, rice wine
sipped from the moon cup

moon opens the sun’s palace doors
the artist already drowned
the ceremony of the inkpot
serves him as spring

unarmed the poet’s body floats
under the peaceful gaze
of birds, stars, mountains
