Lavender smudges

Bruise the tear-stained eyes and cheeks,

A mirage appears.



Spiral towards space

Until apogee is reached,

Drifting in the breeze.


Scraping the blue sky

Hong Kong’s boxes of refuge,

Heart is the real home.


Humour of all kinds

Spread all about the great earth,

Sugar-coated life.


Gutted, exposed,

Emotion torn from the flesh,

Seared in the harsh glare.


Just one week to go

Until the great grand prix show,

Slaves are devotees.


The minimal art

of white on black on more white,

Life is rarely such.


Reminiscing now

Shades from the past drift about,

Between that and this.


Shadow on the heart

One mistep and the world mourns,

Memory remains.

*** On the sad news of the death of Natasha Richardson, this day ***


You are the scalpel

I am the soul there revealed,

Soft excavation.
