CANNOT SPEAK HIS NAME – 湘蓮子

CANNOT SPEAK HIS NAME

something like expressive aphasia
we all have a problem with naming names

cannot say the time
we can only stutter
beat around the bush
a clock
turning hands

cannot say cause and effect
just hold it back
say retribution

cannot say the place
just say it was crawling with people
and mysterious creatures
with a dead body

cannot say the sea
only
salute

all of july
all the world saluting to him
we cannot say his name
