Abstract

AKU WUWU Four Poems red-fruited hawthorn Treading the fallen le aves, I returned to Salem. Before my arriva l, the autumn win d had taken away all this year’s le aves from the trees. Left are all the red berr ies shining with a naked brightn ess. All the poison juices of the b ody make the sunlight of this town surpr isingly piercing. e p Th eople in Salem planted trees bearing poisonous f ruits merely out of appreciat ion, desiring a kind o f poison-rich beauty. 1 wolf skin At an Indian folklife fest ival, a white man in Indian array of wolf s kin, was dancing sincerely around a sacred dr um. I could not ask him whether he had any Indian blo od for he seemed too solemn and stately. An old Indian man nearby told m e in a plain deep voice as long as one puts on a wolf sk in he is either our enem y or one of our fo lk. A wolf is the anim al hurting us the most an d is also a divine anim al we always worship. Neither an enemy of the India ns, nor their
