The Bloom is not the Flower (Trailside Cafe Video #2)

The Bloom is not the Flower

This one’s short, just over a minute. Probably should’ve posted it first, as it ended my first set while yesterday’s poem ended my second set. The text appears in Letters I Didn’t Write.

Also, this is another poem stolen from a dead Chinese poet (as briefly touched upon in this post). In this case Bai Juyi’s poem, The Bloom is not a Bloom.

About John MacKenzie

I'll mumble for ya. Poetry, plus most things quantifiable: science, neuroscience, memory, epistemology, baseball. And so on.
