Congratulations to Edwin Mak (aka commenter FTIN), for his prize-winning verse summation of Ashes of Time:

“Distance births desire;
Wine chides parole.
Swordsmen our agency,
fictions of the soul.

Worlds devoid of fathers,
brothers purport rule.
Money, loyalty equal
in the Jianghu.

Bodies efface gender;
Sand, victor o’er time.
Death a sop towards
Vicissitudes sublime.

Reliant on blindness
our faith is driven.
Betwixt love and pain:
Finitude forgiven.”

Wong Kar Wai has named Mr. Mak, a writer living in London, the winner of our Ashes of Time challenge! He will  receive the new Ashes poster, courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics plus a copy of Criterion’s new Chungking Express DVD, courtesy of Criterion, and enjoy the special notoriety of being the official poet of the filmlinc blog!

Special thanks to this contest’s sponsor, Criterion.
