"Deep Red Dreams" (深红的梦)

Liu Dao

Well here it is as straight as I can give it: I’ve been contemplating murder. In my daydreams and while I sleep twitching like a worn out dog at the thought of strangling, stabbing shooting, cutting. The real problem is I can’t decide on whom. It’s not that I can’t find a suitable person…quite the contrary actually, there are too many candidates. I want to kill them all in a sea of red but I’m worried at how quickly I’d get caught, and of course the incredible mess it’d make. I’ve narrowed it to a short list splotched with ex lovers, liars and ex business partners. I’m just waiting for one to present themselves worthier than all the others. And like the unfortunate first rodent in whack a mole I’ll let them feel the full force of a deep repressed red dream I’ve harbored all these years. Just hope you’re not the one I set it off to sail with.
