Celebrating Shortness by Yuan Changming

Life is so short
Nabokov explains
Our existence is
But a brief crack of
Light between two
Eternities of darkness
Or in Su Dongpo’s words
Is a white foal fleeting
Across a narrow gap
Indeed, brevity is the
Soul of English, and
Everything else, so
Let’s cut it short
And even shorter
To make life long
Longer than art
