Poetry is not subordinate to purposes beyond itself: its highest purpose is to be without purpose.""So-and-so's come to a sad end . . ."In the gloom, he smiles gently, lovinglyAs if to say I can rely on him in this world of nothingness"But the thing is, we could never be sure. . .""We probably should" and "Possibly." . .Earnest words like the thread in a foster mother's handAs she darns a monk's ragged robeThat's a story that can't be darned"Poor man!"--The thread is knottedBut the knot in my heart tries to pass through the needle's eyeThe tree leaves at dusk have an oily gleam"Han Dong was born in 1961 in Nanjing, where he continues to work as a full-time writer. He is also a respected novelist--his first, published in translation as "Banished!" by University of Hawai'i Press, was longlisted for the Man Asian Literary Prize 2008.Nicky Harman lives in the United Kingdom.
