Illusion (After Liu Yong)
.
It is the early hours
before day breaks like ice.
The wind blows
through the shivering trees,
and brings them
to their knees.
I stare at blank walls.
I hear dead leaves
falling from those trees.
My heart ticks slowly
like the drip of a water clock.
I stare into the mirror,
where I see nothing,
but a strange image,
where I should see me.
