A description of the experience

From Li Po and Tu Fu Poems – translated and with an introduction by Arthur Cooper [Penguin classics]

Abandon

With wine I sit
absent to Night, until
(Fallen petals
in the folds of my gown)

I stagger up
to stalk the brook’s moon
The birds are gone
and people are few
