The Event

 

 

 

Through the contracting

circle on the wall

I jump into the world of lies

every word can be falsified when justice

spells the name of a stranger in my ear

in a black veil

I pass between angels and devils

 

No one notices the scar on my neck

no one believes in the cries

frozen in time’s river

freedom is what has to be betrayed

amen, in this centuries-old war

between Law and law

 

                 -Peter Feng
