Star With a Thousand Moons is a major collection of new poems by Andrew Parkin. It contains “Star of a Hundred Years,” a poem of homage to Sir Run Run Shaw, one of the fathers of Chinese movies. The poem marries the ancient Greek ode to the modern film scenario format to create a poetic genre Parkin calls the scenariode. “A Collection of Gourds” is a collection of lyrics reaching back further into the Chinese past of Taoist legend, the world of the wars of princes and the loves of wives and concubines.

Though the eyes of a poet two Japanese cities are merged in Yokahama Days, Kyoto Nights into a single duality of day and night. Both poem-journal and mood map, in these brief descriptive pieces the poet discovers a mirror of his own dual consciousness.
