Something Transparent

Socialist Capitalists, 2020-2021   Oil on canvas   40 x 30 cm

透明的東西

 

那窗子,大到看不見邊緣,但又小得讓人們察覺不到。

我試着看看窗外,只看到朦朧的景象。

我以為自己能看到世界的全部。​

某天,我嘗試把頭伸出窗外去,面頰卻狠狠撞到某東西,世界也震動起來。

我留心細看,才發現雨點早就乾涸在透明的它之上。

我再用力踢在它之上,震動的不再是世界。

 
 

SOMETHING TRANSPARENT

 

The window is too big to see the edge but too small to make people notice it.

I tried to look outsides the window and saw only a hazy scene.

I thought I could see all of the worlds.

One day, I tried to stick my head out of the window but hit something hard on my cheek; the world shook.

I observed closely to find that raindrops had already dried up on the transparent thing.

I kicked hard on it then, and it was no longer the world that shook.
