Found a book of Walasse Ting poems and paintings.

Started reading a poem out loud. In French. He also had poems in German. And Chinese.

Wonder if I should publish my French poems. Little ones. But I like them.
(I got to keep the book I found. A gift, for loving poetry and paintings so intensely. Isn’t that something?!)

  1. I am trying to find a copy of the Walasse Ting poem “Today 1967 A.D.”
    It begins: “In our time life more comfortable and complicated
    People more busy and nervous”

    Today 1967 A.D.

    by Wallase Ting

    In our time life more comfortable and complicated
    People more busy and nervous
    More money and more war
    Everybody want more and more expensive living
    If you talk about nature, she running into flower shop or
    go to country for weekend
    If anybody melancholy please take an aspirin
    A poem is nothing
    Not bigger than a banana not worth three cents
    Sometimes after big dinner I wish you
    Take a look little star
    See yourself
    Without
    a
    Mirror
