Abstract

DU SHISAN fax machine ■ Through the fax machine, the world becomes the unworld Because she misses him, she decides to fax fragrant and sexy red lips across a great distance. The man sleeps as faxed lips leap from the machine, crawl across the carpet and, trying to climb into his cozy bed, fall and drown in the half-full glass of wine left over from the night before. She faxes again, this time two streams of tears, real as can be, that are blown dry by the aircon as they try to leap from the machine. She waits for the man’s reply and, without it, finally resolves to fax over her own reproachful eyes. The eyes are faxed over and immediately leap from the machine, scamper across the carpet, climb into the bed— Finally she sees: beside the man lies a living, breathing woman. teeth ■ Moral teachings pick their teeth with human bones as they eat their way through history The old man puts in his dentures, picks up a foot-long stick of sugar- cane from the fruit basket and, turning it horizontally, starts munch- ing.
