A Corpse Thrown Into A River

ı was under a heavy burden of the twelveth anniversary
of my imprisonment
and since three months
ı was lıke a living corpse dead
one part of mine
was lying all spread on my prıson ward berth helplessly
tne other part of mine alive
was just watching him as a warning
he could not afford to do anything
the dead corpse was eating itself
he was all alone
like al the other dead corpses too
an old woman came and stood at the doorway
my mother
mama and son we hoısted the dead corpse together
ı held his feet
and she headways
we descended
lowered the dead corpse slowly and slowly
we threw him into the YANG..TSE RIVER
where from the NORTH
bright..brlliant and prosperous armies were flowing
over and over
