SIXTY-SIX:蛮蛮

Man Man
SIXTY-SIX

Coming out of People’s Park
I run into a shower
and hide in the guardhouse at the gate.
The grandpa on duty asks for my age
and tells me his.
He picks up a peanut,
chews with a sigh:
Today’s society is a good one.
In the times of the First Emperor,
66 years,
if you’re not dead you’d get buried alive.
