THEY TALK ABOUT LOVE – 释然 Shi Ran

Shi Ran
THEY TALK ABOUT LOVE

The two of them are discussing love,
one is like a moth flying into the fire,
one has already been burned and wounded all over.
Finally they are turning to me,
seems like I have
what they don’t have right now.

I remember the experience
when I crawled to the birth bed
and showed my lower body,
the nurse who examined me
was baffled,
she had never thought, at my age
I would have beautiful private parts.
The scar on my abdomen told them,
this body had given birth.

I was lying there
feeling the mirror going in deeply
and the knife scraping pain,
silently grinding my teeth.
As a woman
you are going to
feel the knife, feel the knife.
Love has cooled down
and let me have
my perfect private parts.
