— song zijiang (chris song zijiang)
dark night has given me dark eyes
but I use them to look for light
— Gu Cheng
tiredness has already faded in the office
drizzle is like long prose
melding strong wind
midnight lingers in empty Taipa streets
not willing to leave
even when the overpass has fallen asleep
dim streetlamps cannot reach leaves’ veins
or the dimmest corner of the heart
on that strange and empty green
stands a tree, embarrassed,
perhaps we’re the only ones awake
here is the crossroads again
which way should I take?
I just want to move forward
is there a wild dog ahead?
or an untold fairy tale?
head up, can’t see starlight
but the dawn’s light
I walk towards it
(is there a new born tortoise groaning in the grass?)
