ON NEGATIVE FEELINGS – 馬非 Ma Fei

Ma Fei
ON NEGATIVE FEELINGS

Talent wasted,
blaming yourself,
pity your shadow,
gut full of woes.
Drown your sorrows,
smash your cracked pot
to become Li Bo.

TANGLED – 湘莲子 Xiang Lianzi

Xiang Lianzi
TANGLED

Someone has told me
I should use my profession and set up a stall on the ground
Maybe I could make over three hundred thousand per month,
much more than with regular work at the hospital.
I am moved at heart,
but tangled up too.
Should I give shots at my stall,
or should I tell people their fortune
or should I interpret their dreams?
Stupid!
It’s TCM, stupid!
I have to offer Traditional Chinese Medicine!
If anyone says I am doing it wrong,
I call the cops and say he slanders
and insults TCM.
