Abstract

Y A N L I part i 16 My nearsightedness must wear tears to see life clearly 21 My blood cries to your blood Let's not circulate in a battlefield 24 I don't want to ride a sickbed into the twenty-first century But the twenty-first century rides into my body on a sickbed of its own 28 To live like a stone, many conditions must be met Besides texture, color, temperature, and shape You have to know more of the earth's historical secrets Than mankind does, yet not speak of them 29 No matter how young you are Within your mind, you have to take care of the senior citizen named Thought 30 A wristwatch is the cruelest device for torturing time 35 "Who winds the earth's mainspring?" I wonder each day As I turn the doorknob 38 After plunging into themselves Many people find they cannot swim 41 In places where my countrymen have wept for a long time They begin to make salt 45 I like freedom But I feel that a cage is too bulky to wear 46 Humanity is the aftermath of humanity 48 A head-on wind is combing my hair For beauty's sake
