Or, the Creatures of Prometheus
Peter Wu
31 August - 23 September

I want your life


there is no one else in the world

so hollow I would echo


look up now, there is

a definition coming through


they were the only ones who mattered

they were the only ones left


remake appearances to bend

nothing seems to amaze me


Imagine now the dark smoke

reflections and images appear

see it is shared

all these years

hours and milliseconds pass away


it’s all right here

everything is all right here

it’s all right here

we are all right here

I see it is already here


It was her turn to blink.


The pain:








I do not want

         a formula, I want an ear,

                   cycles, sentences, spikes, the sounding thoughts,

                             to transcend all at once
