Discomfort (Chinese translation)
It caused no small matter of discomfort
to paint the scene where, warmed by the spring’s rays,
my friend had lost his pants while so excited...
finally to get his tan.
Meanwhile, in his garden,
the Dandelion raised her sunny head.
Alas, he rushed into the battle, forgetting
the flower’s meaning is to promise total faithfulness.
To my friend, this proved discomfiting, I guess.
