Out of Order | Ju-Lyn Tan

For Cao Fei’s Fu Cha





rock rock rock against the shadow

rock against splintered day

i left a girl splashing tears

for promise of shelter

to the brave men who

raise sail to catch the moon

reflected in mirror pool

echo after me

in my eyes

at my feet

filling the vessel

rock against stillness

towards bolstered rest
