The Container of Time

失重 如汽球悬浮空中 汽球爆裂 眼睛像两张薄薄的纸片 落入漆黑的洞中 身体被吸入狂奔的轨道 尖叫从嘴里跳出 像金属碎片般落满一地 豁然洞开 身体贴着金属轨道飞行 穿越摩天大楼之间 窄窄的缝隙 降落于金色的水面上 回眸望去 正是星光灿烂 历史已过千年 海上依旧白帆点点


Weightless, like a balloon suspended in the air. It bursts, while eyes like two thin sheets descend into a pitch black cave. The body is inhaled into a wildly running orbit. Screams leap from the mouth, like metal fragments scattering on floor. Suddenly, the cave splits. And the body flying along its metal orbit shoots through a narrow crack between skyscrapers and falls onto golden waves. Looking back, the starlight is brilliant, and thousands of years have passed. And the sea is still dotted with white sailboats.



飞翔止于凝望 任波涛万顷 扑面而来 轻盈如羽 借一片蓝天 栖息 许多花 在时间的沉默里 开启和凋谢 旋律 随风而去 在比宁静 更空旷 的幻象里 逐渐 陷入 花朵般的 柔软 与 眸的碧波里


The flight stops when you gaze at the sky. Let billows come over your face. Light as a feather, you borrow a piece of sky and perch on the blue. So many flowers bloom and wither in the silence of time. The melody gone with the wind. In the illusion more void than silence, you are slowly lost in softness of flowers and waves of eyes.
