About The Tang Aesthetic

There's something important

About Tang poetry that sometimes

Gets overlooked or confused

With the Zen idea of

Living in the moment

I'm thinking about the poet’s

Use of direct address

Speaking personally

Though in regulated style

And neither is it labored

As is the diction of us moderns

When we wax poetic

It's stream of consciousness

Organized line by line

With courtly style and flair
