Poetry by Alan Chong Lau

why i can’t always paint

i have completed

my mountain hermitage

there was to have been a waterfall

outside my window

but my brush faltered

each sheer plunge of water

refuses to flow

rather hangs

in mid-air

resembling chunks of concrete

it must be my american influence

the top of the painting

seems endless

white space

holding on

to pins of air

a wall of silence

so immense

it covers the sky
