Penny Fang #1 I AM

I AM
I am thoughtful and kind
I wonder about the loneliness of trees
I hear the cicadas’ laughter
I see a cloud wandering for its homeland
I want to stop for a lemon tea
I am thoughtful and kind
I pretend I am a feathery angel
I feel pity for the good men’s torturing hell
I touch the last ray of light at dusk
I worry about loss and lost
I cry for my dog
I am thoughtful and kind
I understand your maternal love for me
I say ‘can you not grow old?’
I dream for a white house
I try to go deep into your language
I hope I can walk across all the Britannia bridges
I am thoughtful and kind
