SKARS – 李云枫

SKARS

The day we are going to Skars,
you stand by the road seeing us off, you are so sad
you take down your wings, you say you won’t fly any more.
You will always stay here, with this city, and sink to the bottom.

The day we leave here
slowly we fly into the air, see you become smaller and smaller
with this city together, fade into the distance.
That time we see a few fish flying past
with furtive faces, dressed in black lace
and they say: “Water is a gentle organism.”
I cannot understand their language, we are passing shoulder to shoulder.

The day we are going to Skars,
we say we are leaving for thirty days, we’ll be back here by the end of fall.
You stand by the road, you are so sad,
you say: Skars, Skars, a city that doesn’t exist.
On the way we all say that’s the scariest joke,
we all dreamed of this city before.
Wide open streets, trees dressed in white and silent angels.

The day we are going to Skars,
you stand by the road and say you’ll sink to the bottom of the sea with this city.
You say: Skars, Skars,
a city that never existed at all.
