Why my poems are so barren, not poeticized
Lack of music, rhyme and stunning images?
Why I refuse to edit and trim each line
Make them sound smooth and look great?
Why I am lazy to use my twenty dictionaries
Spend more time to look for fancy words?
Why don’t I present myself the best, perfect
So exotic, so learned, so magnificent?
Because I believe my honesty persuades you
There is melody in thoughts, magnetic voice
There are beautiful landscapes in plain verse
Composition is like living, a spontaneous improvisation
My poems for you are love letters
So I must write to you truthfully
