1.Tattoos By Begonia– Chi, Yu
Always forget …in the left chest.
There is a small scar.
Why was it there?
Was it caused by knife or sword?
Or by tender lips,
Kissed by a not gentle curse?
Until in the sunset of life, the day when heart hurted,
Oh…at the day when heart hurts.

The scar, the scar has grown.
The imprint of the hand belongs to whom?
A blood crab.
A tattoo by begonia leaf, the already distorted pattern.
He looked at the begonia leaf pattern.
Is it a wound? Or an internal injury?
