6. Bulin's Entry for the Lullabye Competition
     Gu Cheng (1956-1993)
     Bulin's File (1981)
     Translated from the Chinese by Joseph R. Allen



The blood of grapes fills the glass
and air fills the bronze bell
into the mouths of those who fancy death
are placed tear-gas bombs and a million words

Hey, Little Treasure who no one wants
Don't you cry, look,
there are angels of cream
hiding from the rain, under the arches of the bridge

As long as the torrent of mud holds off a little longer
they can finish their conference
a conference that decides to vacation inside your heart
where the rents are cheaper
