Reaching an impasse
By Michael D Brown

China and Japan
again at odds
over a small island
too small to share,
to parcel into halves
fit for a truce, appropriate
for the maturity of nations;
the past neither completely
absolved with a formal apology,
nor forgotten in retrospect.

One Response to “Reaching an impasse”

  1. It continues and continues. It never ends.
