say yes say no

by Hui Sun

an emergency to slow down
but i take baby steps to hurry up
the buddhist desires to keep desires at bay

it’s time consuming to save time
but time and again
you just want to waste some time with someone

someone fades into nobody
the time saved
alas! the life wasted

guess paradox is a mysterious gift from pandora’s box
once taken we won’t let it go
never gaze upon medusa directly
if you don’t feel like being a stone
but putting her on your shield is kind of cool
