有這樣一天
蜘蛛的夢
搬家
爛桃
菌君讀毒
第十一種假設
壞天氣
蘑菇的網
島
沒有影子的牆
愛肯定理解愛
屏幕的慾望
溫柔的空氣
與其愛人不如養狗
那
走了好遠有點記不清
海濱道
I dream of wires

沒有影子的牆 The Shadowless Wall


03.11.2021

我最恨的是蚊子
不傷大雅
卻是一場有關痛癢的暗殺
吃進去的是言語
吐不出的是文字
於是我口中所謂天梯
化成你眼裡教堂
要在有光的地上蓋一座房子
我心向南
你耳朝北
錢從來不是問題
只是時間
唯有拿我們來換
說著這裡的深夜和清早都是寂靜的
那隻隔著一面沒有影子的牆的蚊子
嗡嗡作響
唱著牆裡牆外血液的不同
