The Rise and Fall of Lonely Men

 

 

Once again then, China! cold blooded

Confucian decency...a smattering of good will

causing prosperity to be general and genuine

but without tolerance

for extravagant thought.

 

Art

has its place

...poems and art perfume History's scheme

but the story of eastern palaces

and their poetic hovels

is often

unabashedly

brutal...
