       Why I Never Turn Around
            —After Po Chu-I’s “Song of the P’I-P’a”

       You were inside the boat.
       I was on the shore.
       We raised glasses –
       No music? That’s music!
       Hey! Drink, sing –
       Dancing music, drinking song!
       And then the blurring river
       Soaked the moon.
       Separation. What a way to go—
       The unspoken word.
