Two Poems

By Quinn Li

Six Feet

November 21st, 2020

Six feet distance
Reminds people:
How much you need
A simple hug

Six feet distance
Reminds people:
We are not nonobjects
We are a special object
——magnet
All the people you know
Either attract or repel
There is no simple six feet

Bookshelf in Zoom

November 21st, 2020

During the epidemic
Everyone meets in zoom
Many people’s background is a tall bookshelf
The thick books fill his background

I also want to have a background like that
then every word I say
Is powerful
then every word I say
seems to have references

Writer, poet, environmentalist. member of Chinese Poetry Association. I live in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. I Graduated from Tongji University with a master’s degree.  

During the pandemic in the US, I was stuck at home and started learning how to write a memoir in English, based on my observation of the cultural difference between the western country and China. My background is not about writing, so I did start writing because of the pandemic.
