If Balthus was a young man again,
he'd come to Songzhuang and show us everything
beautiful about Chinese women.

Traditional culture though it is,
the village girls would model for the Polish count,
the handsome laowai.

He'd rent a spacious studio
- bedroom on the top floor -
sell one painting a year (at least one!)
to cover the rent of 50,000 yuan.

He could drink white wine
with his comrades in Art,
attend banquets with curators and dealers,
buy his materials from the local art store
his aristocratic face opening doors.

If Balthus returned from the big studio in the sky
we would roll out the red carpet
for such a great artist.

achingly beautiful about Chinese women

I love that verse... ...and the whole poetic offering here, Kenny. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

Ah mate! A Sable brush softly stroking the triangle with every hair in place. I've missed you my friend. This is as about as fine of poetry that I've read from you Kenny. Searching for the girl with the dragon tattoo tailing her navel.
