DISCOVERY OF AN ANGRY YOUNG MAN

My mobile phone weighs 16 grams,
it’s full of all kinds of data,
political theory,
philosophical research,
classical literature.
But only recently I have discovered,
my mom’s mobile weighs 128 grams,
and it has only my photo.

TRUST – 西毒何殇

TRUST

those few days of the earthquake
people in our compound
didn’t dare to sleep in their flats
they moved into tents
the contractor from the eight floor
came out to tell us:
“you don’t have to worry,
I built this myself!
all good material!
if every house in xi’an collapses
this one will still stand …”
then came the clinch:
“otherwise why would I live here,
a guy with money like me?”
