"My Montage" - A Poem

Translated from Chinese poem
When I am inspired, I feel satisfied, when I am satisfied, I feel empty, when empty; so I follow the music, and when the music plays, I feel lonely....
Clam Chowder in an iron pan in a clean kitchen
The lemon hanging on the side of the transparent cup is soaked with ice tea
Looking out the window...,
Life is an ant slowly getting out of the gap in the sink
A daffodil stares at the shadow in the mirror
Lingering is shining
The shower head is pouring behind the faint bathroom glass
Raindrops and teardrops...,
A ray of sunlight shines into the memory behind the screen windows on the land
Even dust is flying with notes...,
At this moment, inexplicable autumn leaves are choked in his chest
Wandering, wandering, wandering again...!
Oh, Montage! I want to drink coffee and loneliness
A few flying bees shuttled back and forth among the wildflowers
Dancing to my heart's content, my dedication...,
Put on a beige windbreaker and shake off a breeze
Look, the German Wolfhound named Xiao Hei is staring at me...,
The engine finally broke the deadlock and started the behemoth
Winding up the mountain to the crossroad...,
It turned out that the clam chowder was scorched in the pot with red eyes waiting for me to clean up the mess.
Oh, Montage, I want to drink coffee and loneliness
When I am inspired, I feel satisfied, when I am satisfied, I feel empty, when empty, so I follow the music, and when the music plays, I feel lonely.
