"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Ivan Sun


He Hurled a Rock

He hurled a rock. A web
bloomed on the glass, art
of the inscrutable spider
that nets no flies
but just my eyes.

He stumbled away,
not knowing in this mandala
he has wrought
a portrait of his illness
and the cure.
