DAZED – 欧阳盼兮 Ouyang Panxi

DAZED

Teacher, I am sorry.
When I’m in a daze, I don‘t think anything.

If I think of how I am going to do my homework over the winter holidays,
that is thinking, not dazed.
If I think of how I was in class with my teacher Big Cat, that is remembering and not dazed.
If I think of my dad, that means I miss him, that’s not called dazed.
If I think there is a rainbow kingdom up in the sky, I am creative,
not dazed.
If I think of what I am going to be when I grow up, that is dreaming, not dazed.

Only if I don’t think of anything, that is called dazed.

INTO SPACE

 

Teacher, I am sorry.

When I stare into space, I don‘t think anything.

 

When I think of how I am going to do my homework over the winter holidays,

that is thinking, not staring.

When I think of how I was in class with my teacher Big Cat, that is remembering and not staring.

When I think of my dad, that means I miss him, not staring.

If I think there is a rainbow kingdom up in the sky, I am creative,

not staring.

If I think of what I am going to be when I grow up, that is dreaming, not staring.

 

Only if I don’t think of anything, I just stare into space.

WHY PEOPLE VOTE TRUMP – NEXT THING IN AUSTRIA

五月 18, 2020

WHY PEOPLE VOTE TRUMP
(and why De Niro hates him, he wants this only in movies)

Because
He doesn’t play by the rules.
And Russia and China
And most other people
Cannot always afford
To play by the rules.
And when money talks
And the Mafia beckons
You cannot afford
To play by the rules.

NEXT THING IN AUSTRIA

That little valley
Which is only accessible from Germany
Will hold elections
By holding up sabers
The results will be valid
For the whole country
But only if they guarantee
To vote for the chancellor
The Greens agree either way
Long Green explanations
Forthcoming
For sure
