A Chinese Riddle

the long legged musicians
are
playing flute and guitar repertoire
while
parading into the honeymoon suite

高脚小儿郎
吹箫入洞房

Divergent – Chinese Riddles

Our intimacy has no distance
Our distance increases intimacy
The intimate element is the distance
The secret of distance is intimacy

我们的亲密没有距离
我们的距离增加亲密
亲密的元素正是距离
距离的秘密就是亲密

Sweater – College Poems

right after she farewelled campus life
she packed a shoulder bag
with his sweater tight around the strap
got on the first coach
without looking back
salty drips swallowed in an empty stomach

she woke up in another city
launched herself into hustle bustle
isn’t it how old memory fades
with new scenery created
if only autumn lasts for 6 months

sense of smell may linger a life time
it wasn’t a calculated risk to
tight that sweater
it was part of her too anxious to let go

first snowflakes falling from the neon sky
one lands on her lips
she holds up his sweater

catching the rolling tears
warming her frozen cheeks

she misses him

 

刚告别了校园生活
整理行装
打结了他的毛衣
速上了长途汽车
不堪回顾
咸咸的眼泪在空腹里浸淹

苏醒在陌生的城市
一劲投入繁忙中
过去不就让它过去
新地新风景
只愿秋天长半年

气味有时一生难忘
并非计算过有多冒险
结上毛衣
只因依依不舍

雪片在霓虹灯下飘落
停留在唇边
把他的毛衣拥起

接着下滚的热泪
暖起冰凉的颊骨

想他了

Perilous – College Poems

when you are trapped in your maze
keep a smidgen of sensitivity
fathom my fear boiling under the surface
you know my entangled rationale
unfit to guide you to the exit
and your silted decadent
is drowning my brokenness

当你心绪停滞时
是否愿意保留一束敏感
体味我欲动的狂恐
你明知道我纠缠的理智
无法为你拨开心锁
而你内心淤积的颓废
纠将淹没我的破落

Fragile – College Poems

meditate in the breezy quietness
brushing the heartstrings
the fragility of body
the scars of the mind
caution in expression

it’s never your intention
tiptoeing around me
still wigwag me into pieces

in a panic
hauling me all up
in vain
leaving a trail of
Blood stains
from frantic steps

席座风自何处
拂动心弦几许
患薄体态自何伤
慎言纳止
君本无心
久经触碰
战战兢兢
碎我一地
拾全
无望
及足

Unsettled – College Poems

night
creep to my bedside
vaguely
in the pale moonlight
open a book page
the blindness of my heart
omitting a tittle

grab a cigarette
missing the light
fall back to bed
drifting off

the torrential rain
hurry to be awake
looking in the mirror
the drenched me
escaping from the dream
defenceless


悄悄落到床边
依稀里
看到月色下的苍白
执一本书
心盲了
读不进一个逗点
抽一根烟
找不到零星火点
倒头睡去吧
梦里有雨
赶快醒来
镜子里
从雨中走出的我
无处藏身

Pondering – College Poems

why do we want to save yesterday
why are we waiting for tomorrow
does it matter today is a flaw

how come I am speechless
how come I am missing a rib

where is the wind blowing from
how is the frost bringing about

all I see is barren land
what can I do about it
what am I searching for
what have I learned
what have I lost
Which heart got hurt

昨天留来干什么
明天又等待什么
今天过得微恙又如何
怎么缺了口
怎么少了根筋
哪里来的风
哪里下的霜
满日的苍然
要来干什么
找什么
得到什么
失了什么
伤了那颗心
