With Gunpowder leaves in water
untwisting as if for the end of winter
you may be drawn to further things in China
the Iron Goddess of Compassion, jade.
On the other hand,
Lipton Brisk you can use to draw a horse in a rusty coat
or sip in Ireland with milk, and chubby beans on toast
in the house of a house painter
specializing in yellow.
