A Different Music

full of wine
night comes
falling blossoms
fill my robes
still drunk
but getting up
I wade
after the moon
when the birds have gone
and people are few

Hey Nessa, it is about Li Po, the legend of the T'ang dynasty, who drowned drunk while trying to embrace a reflection, his own, in a moon-filled pond.

i'm a big fan of Li Po. i hope one day to have a mythology of myself as he does: Li Bo, who drowned drunk trying to embrace a reflection of a pond in the moon.

did you write this? if so, good job reclaiming the simple things.

Yeah the Chinese narcissus, who wasn't in love with himself but with the moon. The moon is a more acceptable love maybe.

ES: No, I didn't. George Crane did. I think you'll like Crane. He's kinda like your kinda guy.
