LI HONGWEI Dreaming of a Tiger’s Corpse os Th e who dream of tigers on a rainy d ay possess an ancient forest inside their b odies where there are hundreds of green, lush trees and ca lm birds. Sun rays are packed, unable to find a way to flow o ut. Even if they poke through the leaves and pour to the g round, there will be only colorful tapestry stitches. e fa Th ther of the public beasts ri ses. He walks at ease, eyes far-seein g. He doesn’t carry weapons, just his flashing t eeth. With his howling, he patrols the vast dr eam and with a real tail, left and r ight, mopping the fern grass and earth, sweeping the w ind. He leaps up to the crouching boulder , and with one big bite eats up the rain and the dreamers. It’s on a raining day like t his, I dream of a tiger’s cor pse. Ragged, it’s halfway immersed in a paddy fie ld, two hind legs completely g one. Luckily, its mouth and wiring are in tact. With electricity, it can smile a tiger smi le and sing soaking-wet songs.
