这是决定性的一刻

天空滴下几滴鳄鱼的雨

 

一些石头一样的生命

正在苏醒

 

而远方是一个更小的远方

那里日子悬挂,一些仿佛记载着编年史的树叶

 

正在继续飘落。

The edges of checkerboard pattern are not strong enough to break the bond we have forged, the collusion into which we have entered. Wild horses, as the old cliché says, couldn’t drag me away. I am drawn and quartered before her—the price of admission to look into her eyes, and be held.
