Volume Three, Issue 4


Yuan Changming

             If ever at all, if only once
If you were
                    To have such a chance

Just keep driving
                                Drive forward
With no need to take a shoulder check

Despite so many beside you
Despite so much ahead & behind –

Along this new street, your car
(Like your body or thought)
Will adapt its shape like a stream
Of water running its own course
From past to future, amidst
Programmed sapiens, through
The flow of data

Until at the meeting point
Between yin & yang
                                      Between 0 & 1
Between time & space

Yuan Changming: "I published monographs on translation before leaving China. Currently, I edit Poetry Pacific with Allen Yuan in Vancouver. Credits include 10 Pushcart nominations, Best of the Best Canadian Poetry and BestNewPoemsOnline, among others."
