This Transient Life

Women are nothing
when their lives crossed with mine
If there is no Heaven,
I… know about it
made this world more colorful

Do you like my smooth skin?
deep inside the other person’s heart
you can vividly feel the pain
if you’re only half-hearted
and I can feel winter gradually melting

writhing in bed…
there is no such thing as law
The baby boy must be mine too
Trading stuff from here to there
who suppress their desires

The pleasure of young bodies
slowly drained into it
And then, spring
countless times
any kind of wishes

When did he start calling me mother?
if such terrible things exist?
Children are a dream of adults
… treasure your time…

when he was making love
in all kind of details,
Only half of the body remained
You look pale

People say he looks like his mother

I am all alone at night.

Les Enfants Terribles

On Commemoration Day…
She slept. She dreamed…
…sweeping like a car’s headlights over snow
her sweetness should conquer him…
…a sailor facing shipwreck,

Her heart thudding,
Haltingly, in whispers,
This vast glory hole that led nowhere…
All the perfumes of Arabia
…served as a barbaric tomb…
