Infinity Balloon Man
Jack Zhou (BFA IL 2022)


像一个气球,
无限泄气的气球。
我感觉我有大海的呼吸,
烧尽所有星星的叹息。
如果我是有血有肉,
风会散,火会烬,海会干涸,
我的气会被吹散,血和碎骨会溢出。
然后大剧大终,故事结束。

可惜,不幸,
我是一个塑料皮囊。
无限泄气的气球,
没有开头,没有结尾;
世界出生前,宇宙去世后。
我的这口气,厌倦之风,
永远也吹不完
永远也吹不完


Like a balloon,
An infinitely deflated balloon.
I feel like I have the breath of the sea,
Burning all the sighs of the stars.
If I'm flesh and blood,
The wind will disperse, the fire will burn, the sea will dry up,
My air will be scattered, blood broken, and bone will overflow.
Then the curtain of the play will fall, and the story ends.

Unfortunately, unfortunately,
I am a plastic vessel.
An infinitely deflated balloon.
Infinity Balloon Man
There is no beginning, there is no end.
Before the world was born, after the universe died.
This breath of mine, the wind of boredom,
It never ends.
It never ends.
