Day

type a dash, then circle it with an O
now that's the closest you can get to writing day in chinese
no that's was what day looked like three thousand years ago
when scholars wrote with a brush and fluid chinese ink
performing gymnastics from left to right on a rice paper
making sure their strokes do not trip or drip

keep up with the times, ditch the O for a square
with the dash in the centre and now you have
a perfect day within the grasp of your hand
fill in all your wishes and visualise all of them
coming true - within the day's treasure box
