Radio Poets 2015: Eric Mai

AmericaSCORES Bay Area



Eric Mai, Garfield


Is dark like a very old mansion

Like shadows, staring at you

Like black flames moving through the town

Like a moving sky

Is blurry, from my far view

With mountains, with ice all over, very big,

From the middle of my eye,

Is scary, if a ghost is in it


A town full of people,

A big crowd,

With windows brighten up,

A tower,

To see very far,

Some wind, in a big spiral

7 suns, to help me find my way to Chinatown

Very bright, very windy, very cold,

For people to stay home.


Be careful, there's a monster! ! !
