I got on a plane, leaving some things.
For 14 hours, I had nothing to do
but to think and stare as if there was something far by the sky.
something that I could reach up to.
The thought came to me
during 14 hours.
If humans could fly
there would be no one left
on the ground
the sky will be jammed like the roads and streets, choking on people.
and the reason we cannot fly is
some souls cannot bear
the thought of the sky having
crowds of people and their noises.
Those souls must live
by feeding on the solitude the
sky offers to them.
And that is how they rest.
hoping that they will find the
same peace on the ground
Which I did for the next six months.
hoping to find the peace as well.

My friend told me about an incident.
A boy, who was gay threw an acid to some other boy who broke up with him
and to a guard. then
threw the rest of the acid
into his own skin and committed suicide on the spot.
on university campus.
Human Statues on the other hand
made some others jealous
by not giving any reactions.
maybe that gay boy
did not want to be
a human statue anymore
but wanted to be
simply a human
in the eyes of others.
be optimistic by the collapsing.
looked for Anti-Gravity and I found nostalgia.
The street objects kept shifting in and around,
must be the magic of the city. #Taipei
