I DON’T UNDERSTAND – 张书菲 Zhang Shufei

Zhang Shufei
SOMETHING I DON’T UNDERSTAND

Uncle Wang who carves face stamps
let Papa see
the face stamp he made for their boss.
Papa asked Uncle Wang,
how much did he get for it?
Uncle Wang said,
who on this world
would ever ask
his boss to pay?

LOST – 顧惜語 Gu Xiyu

LOST

An uncle rides a motorcyle
and hits a grandma.
The uncle flees in panic,
the grandma gets no treatment and dies.
I think the uncle will come back in the end,
because his heart fell down here.

DOUBT – 游若昕 You Ruoxin

五月 10, 2020

You Ruoxin
DOUBT

Every time
the director comes into our class
for inspection
our teacher always lets us
quickly sit down nicely.
No talking
eyes straight ahead.
Even now
I don‘t understand
why
we have to do this.
Why
can’t we say hello to
or embrace the director.
