This Brick: a Found Poem









It took an artist a hundred days to suck enough

pollutants out of the Beijing air to make a brick.


Killing takes place in the mainly Muslim

region of Xinjiang. 'Terrorism' is to blame.


A politician in Great Britain quotes

Chairman Mao's Little Red Book


while near West Lake McDonald's

opens a new hundred-seat branch.


A hundred yoga lovers, caught on drone footage,

exercise on Hunan's glass bridge.


Scientists discover pandas make sounds

while courting. Roars, squeaks, barks.


Meanwhile, it took more than three decades

for Chinese families to be allowed a second babe.
