Don’t cut my hand
My hand is alive
Don’t cut my hand!
My hand just stole a fiery heart through the cage of chest,
No imaginary flight
my hand
-Movable volume-
-Harmonious companion-
My hand speaks ‌
When we sit with humans
And relationship dialogues
That flow in us like the soft movement of fish lips
My hand is alive
Don’t cut my hand!
My hand slips like a boat
Maybe between whispers of paper
and withdraw next to a word
A word that has memorized me all
Exciting letters, which take me out of the water like a fish
And release in the water again
My hand is alive
Don’t cut my hand!
My hand is among the flowers, looking for golden wheat
Don’t cut my hand with a sickle
The sun is watching us
My hand is alive
And the fish of my being exchange my images
through my finger
Don’t cut my hand with your sharp words!
I can even hear the sound of my hand breathing
when it hugs the cold
Remove the corpses!
My eyes are still breathing
Remove the corpses from my face
The sun still reproduces the concept of day in my eyes
The moon passes between my eyebrows
And it captures a word
Between my lips
And begins a new interpretation of man
My eyes can still climb on the trunk of a tree
They make a piece of the sky belong to themselves
among leaves
Remove the corpses from my face
Words are suffocating
The trees walk
The trees walk at night
And will release shadows and lights into my heart
Without the sound of a broomstick breaking in the shadows
Without the sound of coughing leaves, it makes the space sick
The trees walk at night
And humans are mysteriously planted in footsteps of trees
Their heads bud in the dark
Without a red light stop them
Without the pedestrian lines putting their feet in the cage
The night walks recklessly inside me along the yellow line
