1 Poem by Shi Tianhe

卵石

你就这么沉没
被遗忘在河底

没有沉没
是一场漫长的洗礼

你沉没太久了
失去了存在的意义

沉没的是时间
不沉的是重力
                        1984年

Pebbles

Thus you sink down
And were fogotten in the river bed

You did not sink down
It is a long-drawn baptism

You have been sunk for too long
And the meaning of existence is lost

What is sunk is time
What refuses to sink down is weight
1984
