"Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, in as much as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and very fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterward carefully avoid"John Keats

Reclining sleeplessly, I stare
At shadows through the window
And at the reflection behind me
Indoors and outdoors
Becomes one picture
Like a dream world
The navy night sky
Has a delicate wallpaper pattern
Black grotesque tree monsters
Are prevented from coming nearer
By a piano barrier
Staring, it’s really pleasant
Cozy reflections,
Books in the sky,
Except for the growing tree figures,
I hope they can’t get through the window,
And gobble me if I sleep.
