Hexagram 35: Chin—Progress

Day three out on the
ground; shun Tai-ming’s soft terrain.
Like saying: destroy

what is erected
out of the ground. Ignore Fu,
Yu no blame. A lone

gentleman is not
mandated melancholy,
like the Queen Mother

blessing Chiang Kai-shek.
Yun’s regret and stubbornness
is the upward chi

of a master rat,
like an inappropriate
t-shirt of failure

to celebrate the
mechanism of regret, the
loss of the too mean.

Victoria Yap
is a corner of blame that
the Tao does not light.
