i have something to say
che sio peng

the first worship

comes from the infinite conversation to dawn
previous lives are a well of dead water
smoke of spirit
floats over the chaos

words are too hastily written
they can be song
but not poem
so
stars in chaos
their thin silver basin
look at each other, a habit
waiting for a great work
to hasten, to finish
for ages to come

time has aged
we surely are
A B C D
on stage for a moment
night off
dawn allows
the crows to continue the song
time has aged
we surely are
A B C D
On stage for a moment
night off
dawn allows
the crows to continue the song
