a Series of Titles

I often find myself using the same title from a poem again and again. I love titles and never quite seem to get all the mileage out of them that I feel they deserve. "in the Center" is one such title. For those who know, China in Chinese means the middle country, or sometimes, the center country. What I've just posted are four entries (all of them to date) written during my Chinese classes here in Shanghai.

Lethe, Wergild, and the two-fold titular Treading Watercolors are others that have been recurring dreams for me. I hope you enjoy.

And if you don't, I hope then that you find someone else's verse to brighten (or darken) your day.
