Concrete Poem

I Am

I am a little boy who likes to play badminton.
I wonder someday I can be an acknowledgeable badminton player.
I hear the audiences acclaiming for my arrival.
I see the bird zooming in the court.
I want to be a professional badminton player.
I am a little boy who likes to play badminton.

I pretend to be an absolute badminton player.
I feel the blessedness deep inside my heart.
I touch my racket in a courageous manner.
I worry about missing the birds.
I cry when I got defeated.
I am a little boy who likes to play badminton.

I dream I was play badminton during the Olympic.
I try to outright my dream.
I am a little boy who likes to play badminton.

A curve to be hugged
A corner to be embraced.

Murmuring song of
Past remembrance
Mind ravaged in situ.
Energising the hand
To ask for spirit’s favour
Setting up an arrangement
To trap myself aflame
Within a creative frame

-Johnny Zhang

Action Poem

Chlorine may ruin my hair
And irritate my eyes
I may not be as quick
I may not have the perfect stroke

If I still had a coach -

But after seven years
It feels as if I've never left
How I went this long without?

I forgot what I
