Hedgehog’s dilemma

by on Oct.28, 2010, under reading

The hedgehog’s dilemma, or sometimes the porcupine dilemma, is an analogy about the challenges of human intimacy. It describes a situation in which a group of hedgehogs all seek to become close to one another in order to share their heat during cold weather. However, once accomplished, they cannot avoid hurting one another with their sharp quills. They must step away from one another. Though they all share the intention of a close reciprocal relationship, this may not occur for reasons which they cannot avoid.

Paint It Black

“That was what she really wanted.
To forget so thoroughly she’d never have another memory again,
the bitter so bitter you gave up the sweet.”

100個想你

by on Dec.26, 2009, under quote, reading

我得趁我還記得時寫下,
因為我怕我的回憶越來越模糊。
我不能讓這種情形發生。
我已經失去了你,就不能再失去回憶。

我沒有對你更好,
只是一直在做著,我們在一起時我也會做的事。

how many souls?

by on Nov.06, 2009, under poetry, reading

Mirror, Mirror

When I look into a
mirror,

it is her face I see.
Her right is my left, double
moles, dimple and all.
My right is her left,
unblemished.

We are exact
opposites,

Kaeleigh and me.
Mirror-image identical
twins. One egg, one sperm,
one zygote, divided,
sharing one complete
set of genetic markers.

On the outside
we are the same. But not
inside. I think
she is the egg, so
much like our mother
it makes me want to scream.

Cold.
Controlled.

That makes me the sperm,
I guess. I take completely
after our father.
All Daddy, that’s me.

Codependent.
Cowardly.

Good, bad. Left, right.
Kaeleigh and Raeanne.
One egg, one sperm.
One being, split in two.

And how many
souls?

Can’t I even have the privacy of my own soul?

I used to think I was the only one who felt things, but I really am only one infinitely small part of an aching humanity. It’s a good thing most people bleed on the inside or this would really be a gory, blood-smeared earth.

Before I die,

the combination of the three books’ names actually sound like something meaningful.

她是一個婊子

by on Oct.08, 2009, under quote, reading

在我瘋狂蒐尋Godard作品集的時候,看到這樣介紹的一本書

在你心裡有這樣一個女生。
你情願把自己早上的牛奶給她喝。
你情願為了她騎車一小時去買驗孕試紙。
你情願為了她每天幫她抄筆記然後送到她家。
而同樣的,你也情願相信一個陌生人,也不願意相信她。
而你相信的內容,是她是一個婊子。

never never

by on Mar.02, 2009, under quote, reading

一位名叫摩爾的美國工程師,把一種球狀的,相同數量的紅色糖果和綠色糖果一同放在一個玻璃瓶裏,然後搖晃瓶子,直到兩種顏色完全混合。你以為紅色和綠色的糖果會很均勻地混合在一起嗎?不是的,你所看到的是不規則的大片的紅色綴著大塊的綠色。

雖然放在同一個瓶子裏,兩種顏色的糖果依然各據一方。我從來沒有改變你,你也沒有改變我。無論多麼努力,我們始終各據一方。
