    Let different tea leaves be placed inside different tea jars, much like wine. Long stored tea leaves also needs to be revitalized (by slowly heating and re-baking the tea a little). These little tea leaves jars are also called 醒茶罐 (Xing Cha guan - awaken tea jar) as it’s meant to hold small amounts of tea leaves for that day, much like decanting old wine before consuming

    Letters swallow themselves in seconds.
    Notes friends tied to the doorknob,
    transparent scarlet paper,
    sizzle like moth wings,
    marry the air.

    So much of any year is flammable,
    lists of vegetables, partial poems.
    Orange swirling flame of days,
    so little is a stone.

    Where there was something and suddenly isn’t,
    an absence shouts, celebrates, leaves a space.
    I begin again with the smallest numbers.

    Quick dance, shuffle of losses and leaves,
    only the things I didn’t do
    crackle after the blazing dies.
