holy noise, etchings across this year’s chinese garden
by Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé
excitation à la mode, an applied form
spirits on the move
vibrations in a pursuit; a persuasion
a displacement of this type, static, charted
internal; a sensation, an oscillation
of functions now frequented
by the ancestral
pumps / chains / pulleys / turbines
a sudden wave, velocity;
it is time —
amoral exemplar gone,
quaker belts and springs
on bourne bridge:
what did the boreal owls say?
what did the number indices say?
what did they say about wuwei?
the water running
and half the world
and afraid to fall in love;
the case histories, for example
a conversion chart
