Headstand Poem

This poem is by Shu-Ching Jean Chen, Jeremy's friend and former co-worker in Hong Kong.


Like a toddler, learning to walk for the first time
I hold up my feet to an unknown sky
The earth is my extended body,
My anchor of sanity

The passing sunlight
Shines on television, lamps, computer
And a transient reality
All disconnected from my senses

The whole world is to be tilted, twisted, slanted,
At my fingertips
Turned upside down, and shredded into dots and lines
Each reflecting on one dimension of an uneven truth

What comes from the heart
Goes straight into the mind
Earth has never be so close
The invisible law of gravity, so clear
