Reply To Mao Tse-Tung

Legendary snow leopard
once roamed Chingkang Mountain,
strode mightily
            over the Great Snowy Mountain…
His Long March cradled
          sharpen claws;
          he entered old age,
      swam the Yangtze River
        like a playful boy.
Thunderstorms come; a wilderness of snowflakes
      fall across cities, countryside,
        and nation-states;
An array of pale stars and stripes like a banner
      of pale bones and blood
      attempts to suffocate the world,
But heroes come again
      amid a red sea of stars.
