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

海濱道 Waterfront Promenade


May 4, 2016

夜晚八點半的海濱道
有一些人
有人跑步
有人脫光上衣跑步
有人跑著跑著開始散步
有人散步
有的男女牽手散步
有的男男並肩走了更久
有的男女坐在長椅上
有的男女摟著抱著坐在長椅上
有的女孩左手電話右手啤酒靠在長椅上
有的男孩左手便當右手電話坐在面海的台階上
有的男孩把頭埋進兩膝身旁是書包和膠帶
有的男孩讀書離其他男孩很遠
有些男男女女坐在石板路上野餐
有些老老少少舖了桌布喝紅酒
有些年輕人播著動感舞曲比賽 push up
有些中年人討論很久卻不知在討論什麼
八點半轉眼九點半
海水腥不及汗水臭
晚風凍不過冷氣涼
來日 方長
