Fang Xianhai

Rot

cities
rotting flesh
desk drawers
rotting secrets
sleeping tablets
rotting unspoken words in throats
everything is similar
when you feel despair

I question
those men and women infected with dark habits
about how many surnames fill the death pits of justice and bristle with stick-like pen-strokes
