商禽 《灭火机》





Fire Extinguisher
Shang Ch’in

At a furiously rising noon, I gazed deeply at the fire extinguisher on the wall. A small boy came over and said to me, “Look! There are two fire extinguishers in your eyes.” Because of this simple statement, I could not help crying. I saw two me’s shedding tears in his eyes. He did not tell me, in the reflection of these tears, how many him’s were there.
