More poems? Wait till I’m dead – With my own poem divided into two

November has never been this disruptive,

that’s when I picked up Allen Ginsberg.

The introduction bring back the “Trump” season, together with

a bit of entangled Winter Blue,

“Winter kept us warm, covering”, says T.S. Eliot.

The kid in the introduction asks his dad “what I’d do if Donald Trump was elected”,

as young Allen Ginsberg put it,

this is called “November Intuition”.

The first poem in the collection was about the then Republican incumbent Gordon Canfield ran for reelection in New Jersey’s Eight Congressional District, as if it was on purpose to echo the kid’s question on Trump in the introduction.

Here I quote,

Rep Gordon Canfield

(Mine Own Dear Congressman)

Canfield votes like a

Typical politician,

Guided strictly by

November Intuition.

For Canfield is

But half a man —

The other half

Republican.

— New Jersey, ca. Fall 1942

And he (Trump) did. When all things sealed in the past,

framed and hanged on the tilted nail,

you have to bring your dropped jaw back to the position.

Right? All will be right, right?

Nothing Left.

推敲

听风听雨是黄昏

Translation [Listen to the wind and rain arrives the twilight] or [Listen to the wind and rain is the twilight]

是风雨带来了黄昏还是风雨就是黄昏?

风雨带来了黄昏。风雨过后,发现极近暮年。或许身处暮年,才想念曾经的风雨。不求风雨后的平静和缓,只渴望再次乘风破浪,直捣云端。

风雨就是黄昏。黄发垂髫自是后者深谙风雨。人生初始,未尝风雨愁滋味。在意识到自身处于风雨之中时,已然不再是黄发小儿了。

只一字之差,全然不同的感悟。
