Chinese New Year
catch a ride
on the hostess’ bodice.
You shave splinters from your chopsticks and
watch the waiter caress pancakes
with plum sauce.
Your fortune reads,
“Someone will make you happy tonight.”
Wishing you a Happy New Year of the Monkey
In honor of the Chinese New Year we are writing poetry to this theme…perhaps you will find inspiration in a fortune cookie.
Please join us at dVerse Poetics where Toni is our hostess. The poetry pub opens at 3 PM EST.
