  • Catalogue Essay

    HeBrings too many secretsDecides not to talk any moreOn a ruin of the memoriesThe guy is a deposed kingSilence, is the fateThose undelivered letters together with all the addresseesDuring the time of unknown destinationWere sentenced to deathWhile in the pantomime of fateInside the man-in-green’s bagBuried my final stationery writing to youAnd also, those in his eyesLines of verse as beautiful but toxic as the white oleander flowers in the spring-- Love is short, but longer than oblivion
