Inspired by Edward Yang's film YI YI. Not totally accurate to the film.
When I saw your white underwear
I felt like the earth
Participating in its first rotation
You were a creature of the sea
While I swam in kitchen sinks
Now I want to show you what you've never seen
Gracefully perched on the white board
Reminiscent of gargoyles on gothic ledges
Not knowing how to swim I jumped in
I thought I was dead, but only a little wet
Sometimes I stare at the back
of people's heads
Long enough, that I forget their faces
So could you do me a favor?
Can you turn around?
