someone took my poems!!

This is the first time I see this
How can someone steal my poems like this?!
I hope a person doesn't plan to use them, that is my biggest concern.

And what does "11" mean anyway?

Any advice on what I can do?

christo almost fooled me. I agree he himself wrote that '11'. But I don't think he has 11 girlfriends now, I think he has found his special one. Look, '11' looks like too persons staying together. I would imagine two otherwise lonely people now have found their special one and are finally together. Is that so? I really expect a touching story!!!! for the happiness

I found the meaning this afternoon

First of all, I am no Picasso, I can not just write something and turn it into a symbol.

I wish I was that famous that I had such magical power

I contacted the "China Daily" today and I was told that some of my poems were "mildly offensive" in a political nature and were taken off the forum. But since they had no idea about all the other ones, they took all of them off just in case there was some kind of hidden meaning in them.

It seems like BS to me, but that was the explanation given to me.

The number-11, represents the government code designated for such offensive material, since they knew the material was politcally and culturally offensive to the Chinese people.


I am sorry to disappont all my fans. But don't worry, because of this, I am more determined to turn my collection into a book and I hope my book will become available in China once it is complete.
I just want to say thank you for devoting some time to reading my work and I hope you can read more of them someday.
Thank you

To those of you who think I have a hidden agenda.....think again.
And remember that China is still a worker's republic. The people with the last say in artistic expression is ultimately the government.

Ok, i will turn it into a symbol then

But......


Since I am now known "the artist" for my artistic "use" of ~11~,
I will give it some symbolism....

IF YOU EVER THINK OF "LOST LOVE" or " BROKEN HEART", YOU CAN EXPRESS IT BY USING THE NUMBERS "11".
KIND OF LIKE THE WAY PEOPLE USE "888" FOR GOOD LUCK, YOU CAN USE "11" TO TELL PEOPLE THAT YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM A BREAK-UP OR A CHEATING LOVE OR A LOST CHANCE YOU HAD.

I WILL GIVE THAT MEANING TO THE NUMBER "11"

IT IS A SOMBOL OF FREE-EXPRESSION

SPREAD THE WORD!!!!!!!!
