Artist Statement:

Grandpa questioned me.
“Americans are making the bodies
immortal, living in closed communities with no death and no birth?”
“Are they replacing the sun, too?
Where will they store the old one?”
I was speechless.
It so happens that Chinese dates
fell everywhere after a typhoon
while those on the tree are not anxious at all.
It so happens that pumpkins just picked are breathing desperately.
It so happens that mayflies have no idea of tomorrow.
Still, it would remain unanswered.
I was roaming in the cosmos and left my track on many a star and planet. I was fleeing with Zeus’ face blazing up like a volcano. I stole the withered sun and put it here for you.
