  1. Han Xue’s Doug poem

    Does everything look like it is?
    Of course not, like the girl named Eva.
    Unless you are blind to see her heart.
    Go and hold her forever in your hug.

    This is a “head in the sand” poem. A Chinese form using a person’s name vertically in order to deliver a “hidden” message. Made by Han Xue Han

    And in Return by Doug:

    Here she blossoms fueled by soft desire.
    Aching heart yearns for a simple, happy mate.
    No one stops today, but she lit a fire.
    X-Ray shows her fertile ground can’t wait.
    Unless you are a fool, you will touch her now.
    Enjoy it when you discover where and how.
