Getting Ready to Confess by Yuan Changming

With a storm
With a gull
With your breath
Goes the thought 
With a vague vision
Beyond the bogland
With your heart
Hawking aloud in the wild
With dripping blood
An unformed concept
A shoal of consciousness 
Bubbling with feeling
With a photon 
With a quantum
With your mind concentrated
On a twisted other
