In Passing

How swiftly the strained honey
of afternoon light
flows into darkness

and the closed bud shrugs off
it’s special mystery
in order to break into blossom:

as if what exists, exists
so that it can be lost
and become precious

Lisel Mueller

Cho is standing for what is precious and ephemeral – he is his fine self, always ready for love and trouble.
