Epact… by Kenneth Kesner



until the mimed distance

distance unaware

winds and poppies too

several storms approaching

in portions call their name

straight in front of you


shadows deeply rose

with the urging of elsewhere


who are leaving for the day

orphans of their youth

along a distance

among the bronze

some came to honour


A native of the US, Kenneth Kesner (肯内思) has been working under the auspices of the State Administration of Foreign Experts in the PRC for several years now. When circumstances allow, he travels portions of the Spice and Silk Routes, and is planning to walk westward from the Central Asian and Eurasian regions in two separate treks.

Epact was previously published in Retort Magazine, 2012
