red lanterns


they attract my eyes

hanging on the posts

of cosmopolitan space

where the government

builds their own democracy

they make some distant

and poignant dances

as the crowd leaves their

mouths wide open

    a political poem unmarked from the title, simple yet profound in meaning. This is brilliant, congratulations ๐Ÿ™‚
