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
