My Words: Belief System by Joshua Ip

Singaporean poet Joshua Ip. PHOTO: COURTESY OF JOSHUA IP

I believe in love

just like a sing-

aporean believes in spring

namely that it exists


not here

like a frog in a well

believes in the sphere

of the sky which he tells

everyone is the sun

and is

for maybe one hour a day

exactly right
