CHANMING YUAN
Self-Renovating

In the heart of every selfhood Is there a tiny seed of antiself That keeps growing unnoticeably Until it is big, big enough To become one and the same With your entire being inside out Like a drop of condensed color Dyeing all the water In a diaphanous jug Each time an antiself gains a growth Your previous selfhood gets thinner Lighter, larger, yet more colorful Like yin seeking to become Totally mixed up with yang In an ever renewed balance
