FIRST POTLUCK BY ROBOT FAMILIES — YUAN CHANGMING

 

What a rich and grand dinner party here:

Look, this jug of wine, brewed with the

Human perms and blood, is brought

By the Vines; this huge plate of tongues

Of the sexiest women, is presented

By the Crows; this is a bowl of fried penises

Of teenage boys, looking like wishbones

Of young eagles. There are also well-baked

Nipples of virgins; barbecued buttocks of

Kings and emperors; steamed brains of

Nobel prizewinners; pickled hearts of poets

And painters; prepared respectively by

Mr Hog, Ms Cucumber, Dr Rice, etc

 

Yeah, they are all homemade dishes; none

Of them is a GMO, nor stem-grown or cloned

 


Yuan Changming currently edits Poetry Pacific with Allen Yuan in Vancouver; credits include ten Pushcart nominations, the Naji Naaman’s Literary Prize 2018, Best of the Best Canadian Poetry, BestNewPoemsOnline, Threepenny Review and 1,469 others worldwide.
