Y: Yellowish Musings

by Changming Yuan

 

Gold, lemon, butter, rapeseed flowers:

 

Pre-positioned, you function to lead

A whole column of evils as in the yellow

Peril, bastards, bellies, dogs, fish, guts

Journalism, heels, even men and pups

 

After words, you will become as noble

As imperial, as royal, or as Chinese

Yellow. That makes all the difference

 

Between a noun and an adjective

Between Chinese and English
