scholars’ wisdom

reid mitchell

When in doubt, kill the concubine
the concubine, the courtesan, the consort,
the fox ghost.
Throw her under the horses’ hooves.
Submit her neck to the eunuch’s hands.
Pitch her out the window or down a well:
the fox ghost, the consort, the courtesan,
the concubine.

Make the soldiers and the black-hairs happy.
