ATOMIC BOMBS – 朱剑

ATOMIC BOMBS

when the bomb exploded
on the city I live in
I made a great leap
and rolled away
behind a sand heap
then I heard on the news
this was the fourth time in history
they exploded an atomic bomb
in a densely populated area
but I clearly remember
it was two times before
this should be the third time
if I am wrong
then where was the third time
they can’t hit me two times
if I’m already dead
why drop another one?

WEANING – 鐵心

五月 29, 2015

WEANING

these days
the kid
is getting weaned
this means I as the father
have to cooperate
this means time and again
to be firm
to grab him
to pull him away
from his mother’s chest
to ignore
time and again the explosions
of crying
till I get him to sleep
