The Forbidden City - A quartet ...................... (Part 2) The Gate of Supreme Harmony




  
  The Shock
opulence provides
  the minimalist repetition of harmony
 prevails
and so on
while high above the spot on the floor 
  where the general stood to report 
  the steel ball was waiting 
  locked to the ceiling, waiting for the moment 
  when the emperor decided 
  if the news was not to his liking 
  to trip the switch, 
  drop the ball 
  crush the bad news
with the newsman's head.
Harmony prevails. Mop up the stains. 
  Get that eunuch 
  to hold the old wife 
  head down in that harmonizing well 
  and put the lid on her feet.
So much …



This was written by a poet whose name I forget . But all credits to him on the prose, yet the pics are taken by yours truly.
